Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Life is about perspective.

A toddler sees the world with a beautiful innocence. He is not any less interested in what makes him happy than an adult, he just chooses to approach it differently. He is laser focused on what brings him joy and he goes after it with a take-no-prisoners attitude (well, unless there are bad guys or villains involved...then there are a few prisoners). But seriously, he lets his mind be in the moment and embrace his goal.

Are you choosing to focus on the parts of your life that cause feelings of stress, anxiety, shortcomings, defeat and failure?

Its your perspective. It’s your choice. Why choose that?

Brace yourself, it’s about to get very real...

I challenge you to rewind your thinking and reset your perspective. We were all toddlers once. It’s time to focus on whatever the little metal superheroes are in your life. Find your inner toddler. I mean...don’t go into someone else’s room in the middle of the night and creepily stand by the bed or pull down your pants and do backflips on the couch... don’t make it weird.

But find what makes you happy and go for it. Find your perspective. Find your inner joy. And for the love of all things holy, remember to smile. People like your smile. I promise.
