the best of things

"Things turn out best for the people who make
the best out of the way things turn out."
~Art Linkletter

Kids are fearless artists. I have always wondered why as we grow up we stop doing what comes naturally as a child. That built in confidence of making the best of things.
Perhaps if we all took their approach there would be a lot more creativity in the world.
That.....and a big shortage of crayons.

You know, I think about that a lot as I watch my toddler do art. She just creates and creates without worrying about judgment or outcome. Its beautiful really!

She is so intense when she works, too! You really capture that on your blog! It is my own opinion that when we 'hover' over kids too much and are contantly giving them direction they become self conscience & lean too much on others opinions.It is a joy watching kids gain confidence through simply creating. I wouldn't want to squash that.
