It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
- Helen Keller
Being with Wyatt today I found my self intrigued with the simplicity of the world around him. I seemed to relish in the fact that he was completely 100% carefree.
The every day stress we have is never an every day or any day occurrence for him. He knows absolutely nothing about the trails we adults face. Bills to him are free scratch paper to color all over. loading a dish washer is a fun game to play and doing the laundry means "icky and blank IT" gets a bath.
My day today was suppose to be filled with hours on the computer sorting through the billions of wedding pictures I took of my brothers wedding and editing them while he played over at "gammys tristenson." as my plan unrivalled and heated words were said to the husband I left in a storm with Wyatt to the park.
As I searched for that park with no other kids I grew more annoyed with how my day was turning out. All I wanted to do was sit and edit and finish those dang wedding photos so I could stress over other things and I mumbled and grumbled the whole way in the car about it. but as we pulled up to the empty park Wyatt screamed out in joy "MAMA PARK PARK PARK!!" and as soon as he could he leaped out of his car seat and dashed up to the park.
I couldn't help but smile.
My thoughts turned instantly to Wyatt as he showed me how he can "KIYEMM" and "OOK OKK MAMA" he'd say as he found the steering wheels... "I'm iving to errk."
All that bad energy left
I became as care free as he was.
So we went off on an adventure...
We ended up finding a Dandelion field.
We Picked and blew those dandelions until there were no more left in that field.
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
“It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.”
As we left nothing matter more to me then those few hours I spent with Wyatt. He brought out the joy I needed to move on from what started to turn out to be a bad day into a good one. he will and always will be the joy, peace and love I need.
"Adventure is just bad planning.”
