“If you see children walking along the sidewalk after a rain, and there’s a puddle in front of them, what are they going to do when they get to that puddle? They’re going to jump in! They’re going to laugh, splash around, and have a good time.
What does an older person do? Walk around it? No, they won’t just walk around it—they’ll complain the whole time! You want to live differently.
You want to live with a spring in your step, a smile on your face. Why not make cheerfulness, outrageousness, playfulness a new priority for yourself? You don’t have to have a reason to feel good—you’re alive; you can feel good for no reason at all!”
