I recently took my two youngest sons to see Despicable Me 2. Now this movie is no Oscar contender in my book, but what simple joy can be experienced when you allow yourself to be a kid. The perfect afternoon was had by sitting in a dark and cool movie theater on a hot summer day giggling and laughing out loud like a child.
Sometimes we let life get too serious and the details of adulthood can weigh us down. My advice is get out with your kids or go borrow some. Better yet, just tap into your own memories and find a moment when you had no cares in the world. The silly things could make you laugh and smile for days. And when all else fails, conger up thoughts of Minions. Those little guys are so ridiculous and cute, you just can’t help but smile!
