Recapturing youth

October 9, 2010 5 comments

Watching my kid hop his way through this sack race today, I thought about how often we wish we were young again.

As I write this post, I’m feeling the soreness from playing three softball games in a row this morning. I play about once a year, so I’m sure I’ll be feeling it for the next few days.

But this desire to recapture youth isn’t always about what we can or can’t do physically.

Think about the risks we’re afraid to take. Think about the safe routes we take in the name of adulthood and responsibility.

I wonder how much more we would accomplish if we occasionally treated life like a sack race.
