Getting Back on the Playground

Children don’t give up.   When they’re on the playground and fall down and scrape their knee, they don’t say ‘ I’m never going back to the playground, I got hurt there’.  No they get up, maybe have a cry, then start playing all over again.

Why as adults do we give up having fun on the playground because we scraped our knee?

If I think about it, it’s  rather silly, to miss out  on what was fun the majority of the time for the once or twice it wasn’t.   I will, of course try to remember how I scraped my knee and avoid doing it again, but I’m not going to tip toe through the fun in case it happens again.  I’m just going to bring more Band-Aids.

One of my favourite songs about this game of life.
