It’s been 60 years now since Disney first released Peter Pan. 60 years! That means my mom, my daughter, and I all watched it as kids. That’s three generations that have gotten to see the world through a child’s eyes and be transported to a time and place where happiness was putting on a costume or building a fort.
Watching the newly released on DVD and Blu-ray Peter Pan classic with my girl reminded me that we always need to find ways to celebrate and nurture our inner child. That I need to have the soul of a kid when I’m with her…and when I’m not. That “never growing up” should be a life example I give her not by preaching it, but by living it.
And how to live a life of “never growing up”? Easier than you think.
