#OneWord Thursday: 13 Quotes to Ignite Your #Inner-Child
This week I had two rich, fully satisfying and illuminating client conversations about the Inner Child. My inner-child, their inner-child, your inner-child is the divine child that lives within; she who reflects our true self. She is pure; she is beautiful. I suspect she’d like your attention, and she’d like to be set free. Set free to create, to play, to celebrate. And, I am fairly certain that she’d like her crayons back!
Read through, ingest on a cellular level, and then allow your imagination to roam and run.
13 (a baker’s dozen) Quotes to Ignite Your Inner Child.
In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence. ~Norman Podhoretz

Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.

There’s a Child in All of Us! No matter what the number may say or how old someone looks they started out as a child… And that child lives inside! -LOVE YOUR INNER CHILD- ~As you connect to the beautiful inner child, miracles happen~ Let your inner child run wild! Remember the days when you were innocent and carefree and discover that you are still that hopefully, wide-eyed kid at heart. ~ Angie Karan Krezos
Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination. ~Robert Fulghum
I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things…. I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. ~Leo Buscaglia
What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult. ~Sigmund Freud
