I admit one is not my favorite age for children but there is so much I admire about toddlers. Toddlers can adapt to situations by jumping from one activity to another and being easily distracted...so I decided to distract myself...get a coffee at the store and head back home to get my ear buds and start my day again. Not a big deal.
Then I saw this video on YouTube....how smart is this toddler???
This toddler thought "outside the box" (pun intended) and found an easier way to solve her problem!
But why can't we think the way toddlers think? Why do we put up so much resistance and create our own stress. Did you ever try to pick up a resisting toddler and have them completely relax their muscles and slip through your hands? Yes, they have learned that if they relax their muscles they can get out of going where they don't want to go! How genius! Maybe instead of trying to be so smart about everything we do we should just learn from our toddlers and relax or find an easier way to solve our problems. Maybe life isn't always as complicated as it seems!
