Being An Adult Is Overrated

Bring Out The Kid In You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Being an adult is so overrated!!

I was working on the bench in the bus and the kid that I babysit for was riding around on his hoverboard.

He’s 8 and can fly around on that thing like no other 😱

I stopped what I was doing to watch him for a sec and when he saw me he came over and asked if I wanted to try it πŸ€”

My mind immediately went to..

What if I fall?

Omg what if someone see’s me fall?

What if I look like an idiot??

Blah blah blah!

It made me think about how when I was a kid if he would have asked I wouldn’t have thought twice about it and would have jumped on it immediately and tried it πŸ€”

What happened to that fearless little kid that wasn’t ever afraid too try something, especially if it looked like fun? πŸ€”

I BECAME AN ADULT THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED!!! 😠

As adults we tend to overthink everything…

Especially if it’s something new, something we’ve never done before and honestly that sucks…

We overthink things to the point where it prevents us from trying new things… It prevents us from venturing out to do things that we want to do and that’s so not good…😠

What’s the worst that could happen?

I’d fall???

Someone would see me and laugh??

So what!!!

So needless to say, I got out of my head and said sure why not, it looked like fun and why should I stop myself from having fun?

I did fall… 😁

Someone did see me and lost it laughing, which of course made me laugh and I got up and tried it again and guess what..

Woo Hoo I did it and had a blast!! 😁

Moral of this story…

Don’t allow overthinking to stop you from trying something new… Bring out that little kid and try everything you want to do… Do not overthink things, cause that’s what will make you quit… Let the little kid in you say:

“Come on let’s go for it!” πŸ€—πŸ˜

Have a great day πŸ’—

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible for I have and am prevailing each and every day. You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀ https://www.gofundme.com/riccis-healing-journey

  1. Right on! It’s fine to have some caution and to be selective about what new things you try, but if you really want to do it, go for it! As I get older, falls hurt a lot more, so I’m more cautious. I thought of taking of skateboarding, but decided that falling on cement would be very unpleasant. Surfing, however…. that I may try! (right after I learn to swim)
