walk in the rain, jump in mud puddles,

collect rainbows,

stop along the way,

smell flowers, build sandcastles,

watch the moon and stars come out,

say HELLO! to everyone,

go barefoot, go on adventures,

singin the shower,

have a merry heart, read children's books,

act silly,

take bubble baths, get new sneakers,

fly kites,

hold hands and hug

and kiss,

laugh and cry for the health of it,

blow bubbles,

wander around, feel scared, feel sad,

feel mad, feel happy,

give up worry and guilt and shame, stay innocent,

say yes, say no, say the magic word,

ask lots of questions,

ride bicycles,

draw and paint,

see differently,

fall down and get up again, take naps,

play ball,

look at the sky, trust the universe,

dance, stay up late,

climb trees, talk with animals,

do nothing, daydream,

play with toys,

play under the covers, have pillow fights,

learn new stuff,

get excited about everything,

be a clown, enjoy having a body,

listen to music,

make up new rules, tell stories, save the world,

find out how things work,

make friends with the other kids on the block,

and do anything else that brings more happiness,

celebration, relaxation, communication, health,


joy, creativity, pleasure, abundance, grace,

self-esteem, courage, balance, spontaneity,

passion, beauty, peace, and energy

to You and to others on this planet.


You are hereby officially authorized to frequent
