Exciting

After class today, I ran an errand on the motorcycle. Two little girls sitting outside Sonic smiled and waved to me. I picked up some groceries and another 2-year old kept her eyes glued to the bike as I rode away. Children inherently know, it seems, that motorcycles are exciting.

<– Here’s a recent photo of Stacey & I on the road to Squaw Peak. We agree with the children.

During a class discussion today, we briefly discussed the fact that critical thinkers view problems as “exciting challenges” rather than just hassles and headaches.

If only we inherently knew THAT.

Update: I took 7 year old Sarah for a motorcycle ride up the canyon for her birthday. “This is the BEST day of my life!” she gushed. She meant it, too.

    Fun! That does look exciting. 🙂 I’ll have to remember that perspective on challenges as well. Wouldn’t that make life so much “easier” if we could always remember that?!
