A Simple Gift: Resolve to Evolve


Passing forward this Simple Gift to inspire and encourage everyone on their

naturally curious and creative P.L.A.Y. journey. 🙂


So often we feel the need to instantly resolve or find a solution to every problem that seems to pass our way, especially as parents.

While engaging with our P.L.A.Y.  filled journey, at any age, it is helpful to remember that problems are merely situations that provide us with the opportunity to learn, grow, and simply be present.

In fact there are times where simply being present, waiting and watching a situation and letting it evolve naturally, may be the most mindful and helpful thing we can do. Through non-action it often becomes apparent that perhaps you were not needed in order for a resolution to be reached.

Take a moment to simply breathe and remind yourself that as the parent you are not required to always have the answers or the solutions. It is ok to simply say “I don’t know” or to take a step back from a situation and watch from a distance while your kiddos (safely) navigate their own challenges.

Resolve to evolve and be present and let your intuition guide you. The answers will unfold right before your very eyes.

Simply focus on your true P.L.A.Y. nature and Passionately Learn All Year!

Now that is a simple gift! 🙂

Time to P.L.A.Y.!

Sending smiles,
