A Hundred Days To Happiness: The Qualities of a Child – Learning Always

Learning Always (for March 27th, 2011)

Do you remember the joy of riding a bike for the first time?

That’s the experience of mastery. A moment earlier, you didn’t believe you could do it, but once you had found that sense of balance and the point of mastery, they became a part of you.

When a child is ascending the learning curve, there are frustrating moments mixed with goofy fun. A child expects to make mistakes and unlike most grownups isn’t afraid to look silly. Ego is left behind – or at least the child hasn’t invested so much into it.

Your happiness exercise for today: Intend to learn something new today. With a friend, plan to do something where you both can be free to look goofy. Have fun!
