Open Like a Two-Year-Old

posted by Sharon January 17, 2012 13 Comments

I love how open two-year-olds are to experiencing everything. They engage all the senses in a great quest to discover the world. Tractors are climbed, songs are sung, water is splashed. Books are patted, balls are flung, movies are absorbed. Sisters are hugged, brothers are chased. And snow — snow is to be tasted.

I want to be more open to life, like a two-year-old. How about you? In what small way can you use your senses to be more open today? What can you enjoy “tasting”?

Linking up with Sweet Shot Tuesdays and with Texture Tuesdays, where the theme this week is “Open.” The texture used on the photo of Tyler is Kim Klassen’s “And Then Some.”

Great “action” photo– because you’re right, that’s what two-year-olds are all about. (Love those eyelashes too!)

There is a lot of wisdom in your post today, which is easy to overlook when you are in the midst of that two-year old lifestyle! Great shot of Tyler, too.

What a cute shot! Yes, 2 year olds have a way of making everything about life FUN. I think we could all use a little more of that! 🙂
