This is a story for anyone at any age and at any stage in their life. It is to bring us back to play. It is for those who want to grow and transform by losing themselves in wonder and curiosity. It is for those who want to reconnect to their imagination and childlike enthusiasm.
A child’s world is one of curiosity, optimism, wonder, creativity, and unreserved enthusiasm. It's a world where there are no ordinary moments, where each moment is infused with uninhibited joy, playfulness, and living wholeheartedly.
Yet, all too often, as one “grows up” they burden themselves with a mindset of responsibilities, obligations, and behaviors they equate with being “an adult.” Life then becomes less fun and more of a struggle, a competition, and a never-ending to-do list. In turn, that precious connection to their inner child, who once had big dreams and joy, is severed.
Play is vital for our mental and physical wellbeing – it is that simple.
We no longer live in an information age, but an input age. We are bombarded with input. However, by reconnecting to your uncomplicated inner child you will naturally tune out unnecessary inputs and reinfuse your life with what Einstein called “a childlike inclination for play”.
A Pimby Tale, a book my inner child wanted to write, was written in the spirit of play. It's a whimsical tale of transformation and reconnecting to the wonder and magic in life, guiding the reader to not lose sight of Possibilities, Imagination, Magic, Believing, and You.
As Filbert the PIMBY said, “Most people, as they get older, let their light go out, but for you, as you have been connecting to your imagination, the light is beginning to shine."
