We are all children at heart! We have to be. Every day brings a newness of experience for all of us no matter the age. And to master each of these moments of newness, we need courage and grit. Sure it’s hard, and scary, and mostly unplanned, but an attitude of being “youthful in essence” may help with the bumps in the road as we hurl ourselves—like a child learning to walk—headlong into the unknown.
