Aurelia's imaginary play is so robust lately, and it's very entertaining and a bit inspiring. She has different voices for her different characters etc...she loves to sing and make up songs....it's pretty awesome:
I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes in a book I recently read by Brene Brown:
"We are a nation of exhausted and overstressed adults raising overscheduled children. We use our spare time to desperately search for joy and meaning in our lives. We think accomplishments and acquisitions will bring joy and meaning, but that pursuit could be the very thing that’s keeping us so tired and afraid to slow down.
If we want to live a Wholehearted life, we have to become intentional about cultivating sleep and play, and about letting go of exhaustion as a status symbol and productivity as self-worth."--Brene Brown
Here's to a great start to a new year full of play and lots of rest!
