Children love to dream of what they’ll be when they grow up, and there are so many jobs to choose from! For instance, they could be astronauts, teachers, doctors or athletes. Indeed, they could travel to outer space, and they could also use those energies of bravery and adventure in so many different ways. Or like the teacher, the energies of patience and kindness can be implemented in every area of life.
What if, children could use their natural gifts, energies, and talents to do what comes easy to them, and brings them the most joy?
In this delightful and inspiring poem, written for children five years and older, Leanne Pastor encourages children to do what comes naturally, as living true to oneself leads to a fuller, more joy-filled life. As the poem reminds us, you can be and do anything you choose. Just remember, you can always change your mind, and, when in doubt, always follow your joy! No matter, whether you’re 5 or 40, it is never too late to be happy. The most important thing in life is to be yourself and do what brings you joy! Joy has a ripple effect, and when you enjoy what you do, you’ll become the invitation for others to choose joy. In this way, “All the Things You Could Be” is about building, person by person, a kinder and happier world.
