It has rained the past three days and we've got some wonderful muddy puddles outside between work and everywhere else. Yesterday, I walked over to the post office with a couple of friends. I took care to walk around the puddles and avoid the mud as much as possible to keep my rain boots dry.
This morning as I walked over to school in the wind and rain, I realized I didn't have to be careful. I don't have to keep my feet dry. I can release my inner child and have fun.
I can dance through the puddles of water! I can moosh through the mud and enjoy walking in it. I can just have a blast because I have rain boots. Rain boots that are designed to keep my feet dry and they come up half way to the knee so I won't even get the bottom of my jeans wet and muddy! Yeah!
Today when I go walking, I will let my inner child loose. I will go through the mud and the puddles and celebrate the joy of being a child again.
