You know how “adults” always get upset with “youngins” for feeling invincible and being a little wild because of that?
As a bonafide adult now, 💁🏼♀️ I wonder if that invincibility doesn’t have to go away. No, listen, Linda!! It’s probably a lot like Imagination and Wonder; sometimes those die with painful experiences, sometimes they shrivel up from neglect, sometimes they just don’t grow into anything else because they were weak in the first place, while sometimes, they grow into something better.
Maybe that “invincibility” that made you reckless as a child just turns into a slightly smarter, and perhaps, more wild exploration of the world as you get to see it more, understand it better, and engage it harder. I think true bravery requires you to be a little wild and a lot smart. 🦁🤓
