Find your Inner Child at Children’s Fest

by Victoria Peterson · 2 comments

To get ready for next week’s Children’s Fest we asked our contributors to tell us about their inner child.  Here’s what Torie said…

I believe the most endearing quality children bear is their uninhibited enthusiasm and spontaneity. To most kids, life is something that should be seized and if something pops up unexpectedly, it would almost be criminal to let that opportunity pass by. As adults, we often lose this sense of spontaneity in a world of schedules, organized activities and sports, meetings and paperwork and the constraints of life can weigh heavily on individuals. By making sure I throw caution to the wind sometimes and doing something spontaneous like going rafting on the Bow instead of finishing up invoices or heading out to the mountains to hike in lieu of cleaning the house, I’m a happier, healthier person. Any chance I can do something spontaneous, I grab the chance and I can honestly say leaving the vacuuming for another day so I can hit the hiking trails has made my life better.

What about your inner child?  Tell us in the comments section and you could win 2 tickets to the Black Violin on Saturday, May 29 at 7:30 PM.

The Calgary International Children’s Festival runs May 25 – 29, 2010 and this year there will be all the great acts for children to enjoy and few that will appeal to adults.
