Dandelions are considered a weed where I live. People try to remove them from their yards. Still, children pick them and give them to their caregivers. Children do not understand it is a weed – it is a very bright, fluffy flower. They give the dandelions out of love.
Now when we are adults, we understand that giving other people weeds is not exactly a social compliment. But we know that getting a dandelion from a child is just plain love. We see things differently as we mature, but it is always loving when we look through a child’s eyes. When we see things from a child’s perspective.
A child’s world is often magical – everything is fresh and new. Children see things for what they are.
Let’s look at things with a child’s perspective. Let’s let go of all of the preconditioned ideas we have about things. Let’s look through a child’s eyes today and see what magic we can find.
