The Harmonious Kid
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
We describe HarmoniousKids as those who emit a presence of equanimity and a palpable sense of self. They viscerally navigate their life’s journey with an internal compass that discerns a path fully felt and authentically experienced. They make choices based on their own inner wisdom rather than as a result of peer pressure and unhealthy emotions. And they remember again and again to be gentle with themselves when they make mistakes knowing that life is a process and they are doing the best they can. HarmoniousKids live a balanced life in awareness, curiosity, connection, and love.
Our lives are truly enriched by these beautiful children in the world and we all have a child inside of us. When we as adults make choices that honor and foster this liberating space of childhood we give our children permission to do the same.
