phantomdiver,First, I definitely didn't intend to sound so strong in my response, so my apologies there. I was just so very surprised to get such a negative reaction. I thought about this last night after reading hocus' post and I believe that we're all basically saying the same thing. I don't believe in complete regression or idealizing the past...that's just not something I'm personally interested in. The message I derived from the item I posted yesterday was more along the lines of enjoy every day with a fresh perspective. Basically I think we as adults can get too mired in the daily grind and administrivia that we forget to smell the flowers along the way. I got a puppy almost a year ago and hanging out with her has gotten me to view things from a different perspective. She believes that everyone is her friend and that every walk is an exciting treat and adventure. I think that tapping into your inner-child means shedding cynicism and negativity to embrace fun and fresh outlooks! Smiling at strangers and appreciating flowers blooming in the spring.I know I've sounded corny, but 2 years ago I was a miserable control freak who hated being a Big 5 traveling consultant. I like having a certain degree of control in my life (I'm NOT a passive person by far), but I've let go of trying to control everyone and every situation. I just don't want to spend that kind of energy. Thank you for your thoughts and I do respect your opinion. That is the beauty of this board, we all have different opinions, outlooks and experiences. Exposure to differences with an open mind is a good way to grow!Take care and enjoy your friday,nmb
