Getting your kicks

Me on a swing This weekend I did something I haven't done in ages. It requires you to let go of all inhibitions, stop worrying what other people think, close your eyes and surrender to the moment. I went on the swings.

Yes. This fully grown adult, who works, pays taxes and cleans the bathroom, went out and swung the swing. I closed my eyes and soared through the air, and lent back and grazed the ground with my hair.

I love the little stomach flip it gives you, the swoosh as you fly forwards and the thundering rush as you cascade back.

It was a little silly, but it put a huge grin on my face. I don't care if anyone saw me or thought I was weird. It was worth it for the smiles.

I recommend you go out and do something simple that you once sidelined, despite the joy it brought and just run with it for once. Go on, get your kicks any way you can.
