This quote hangs in my bedroom just below a framed Disney artwork piece…

That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up.

Walt Disney

Children are often referenced in philosophical/religious writings as having wisdom far beyond that of adults.  They are quick to forgive and forget, quick to love and full of wonderment.   As we age it would benefit every one of us to remember that it’s not always a compliment to be referred to as a “grown up.”  See the world through the eyes you had as a child; you still have them, you just have to awaken that kid inside of you.

“Oh, there you are Peter…”
