What Children Have Taught Me
Follow the adventures of Starling Agency’s Placement Director!
Excerpt from kikicares.com
I never thought I would see the day where my daily 9 to 5 job doesn’t include working with children. As I transition to being a full time Placement Director at Starling Agency, I can’t help but think about the way children have impacted my life. They have truly made me into the person I am today. Everyone who knows me associates me with kids. As I move on to the next chapter of my career, children are still the focus of my life but in a different way. Please enjoy my thoughts and reflections on how children have affected my life in a positive way and still continue to do so.
Play. Children have taught me how to play and be silly again. When I am caught up in the act of play and being goofy I am not thinking about the past or the future. I am truly just in the moment. I think as adults we forget to play. And no, play does not mean watching TV or scrolling through your Instagram feed. In order for me to be a real “adult” and have energy to take care of all my day to day tasks I need play to refuel me. Recently, two of my friends and I went to Lake Chelan for the weekend. We randomly decided one day to go to Slide Waters, a water park that is 95% children. And it was probably one of my favorite days of the whole summer. We laughed our heads off going down slides and splashing in the water. It was pure joy being silly with friends and getting lost in the moment. I came back from that Lake Chelan extremely rejuvenated and ready to start the work week. So play on people. Laugh with your friends until your belly hurts because damn this life can be serious.
