Boys playing a game of mock battle.
Play is growth. Mock battles attempt to prepare us for the real thing. The Real Thing is never the same. Bearing this in mind, look to your games and your learning, knowing they will be tempered by the reality of experience. As we live our lives, we move from the childish to the adult but we must never forget that childlike wonder is a great guiding light for those adult years. It is the worries of adulthood that can crush our childlike wonder, spend time today reconnecting with this aspect of yourself. The rewards are immeasurable.
