Inspiration - Week 14

Not to point out the obvious but I decided to take a week off of blogging. I officially started a new position at the "day job" so last week I was focusing on getting organized. And since I have been doing so well the past few months, I decided I deserved a break.

This week I'm inspired by bringing out the kid in me. Matt and I had a date day on Saturday. It was much needed and such a great day. The first thing that brought me back to my childish roots was yoga class. We worked on doing handstands against a wall. I haven't done those in years! They actually feel phenomenal. Like back bends, it is really a freeing posture. Gets the blood moving, heart pumping and a smile on your face :)

Then later in the day we went to see How To Train A Dragon in IMAX 3D. I have never seen so many kids before. I think we might have been the only people watching the movie that didn't have kids with us. After getting over the original disorientation of the 3D we were really blown away with the whole movie. My favorite childhood movie is The Little Mermaid and I really think How To Train A Dragon is pretty close to the top with it.

Sometimes life can real drain the life out of us. We tend to get so caught up with our jobs/commitments/hobbies that we don't just enjoy the moment. I challenge all of you to take even just a few hours out of your day and become a child again. Watch a favorite childhood movie/show. Do a finger paint piece of art. Build something with lego or play doh. Do something that made you happy as a child.

To start the ball rolling, here is the trailer for How To Train A Dragon.

PS-Lots of photos coming in the next few days!
