We limit ourselves because we live with old defintions, about love, life, people, good, bad, many that were created by society, friends, parents, and billboards. If we take the judgment out of our definitons and leave space for new ones, we also create room for new expereinces. Because we are actually open to them. When we hold on to our definitions tightly, which most of us do, mostly because we tie our worth to them, we leave very little room for anything new. Clear your canvas. Know that you don’t know. And that’s a good thing because when you think you know, you stop expanding. If you are open to new defintions or redefining everything, your world will instantly expand what’s possible will be limitless.
Children will gift you what they found on the way home and it’s okay because well, they’re children. Just the fact that they were thinking about you melts your heart. But as an adult, gifts with zero thought are not cute. They’re fast and convenient. It says you’re too busy or lazy to really think about me and what I like. This means even though you’re being generous, you’re still kind of making it about you. Children make it about them.
