Weekly Whimsy ♥ #1

I am a huge sucker for a good quote.  I find that they help me to reflect on things, and see life from different perspectives.  Sometimes a good quote can completely change my mood.  I think that a good beauty regimen needs to include taking care of ourselves on the inside as well.  Sometimes self-care includes taking time to reflect.

Each week will include a custom made pin which you are all welcome to share, and add to Pinterest! My mom designs all of them, she is one skilled lady.  Speaking of Pinterest, you can check out my page here, if you are pinterested!



I love this quote because it makes me think about my inner child.  I think it is so incredibly important to take the time to do things to nurture our inner child.  This might look different for everybody. We have areas of our lives where we have to come across quite responsible, and "grown-up".  For me, this is at work.  I work as a therapist in an office with lots of other professionals.  I think it's great to maintain a professional demeanour when at work, or at school if you are a student. I think we run into trouble when we let this level of seriousness bleed into the other areas of our lives as well.

Not growing up means letting ourselves be whimsical sometimes!  For me, this might mean spending my downtime watching old Disney movies from my childhood (Lion King, anyone?!).  Or eating ice cream, with rainbow sprinkles, heck ya!  Looking at funny pictures online, and having a really good laugh is another way to get that release. It is so valuable to spend time with people who you can be yourself around, and who know the real, genuine you.  Being able to be our authentic selves can help to nurture our inner child.  This part of ourselves can sometimes be smothered if we always feel like we need to put on our "grown-up" face.

What do you like to do to nurture your inner child?  What is something silly, and whimsical you have done lately?

  2. This is so well written!I love this.I still am a child,well kind of.I am 15,so at this age you are expected to let go of a lot of the things that you used to do just a few years ago in middle school.I still watch cartoons(Lion king is in my top 3) sometimes,but one thing that I for sure haven't ''grown out of'' is coloring books.I love coloring!As much as it might be weird for some people to see a teenager in high school sitting at the table coloring cute mickey mouse pics,I don't care!I think that parts of me that I still enjoy about being a child I will never let go of and always come back to here and there,just like you do!

    1. Colouring books are such a great way to keep your inner child alive! It can also be almost meditative :) Awesome!
