7 Ways My Life Would Be Different If I Had The Energy Level My Kids Have

Do you ever look at your kids when they are running around crazy or still awake two plus hours past their bedtime and wonder where the &#@! their energy comes from? I was staring at my kids today when I took them out to the park after being driven crazy from their non use of their not-yet-developed “inside voice” and sat there and watched.

There they were — all three of them — running in circles, screaming and having fun. They were up way past their bedtime last night (thank you March Break) and decided to get up entirely too early this morning, yet there they were — full of energy. I have no idea where that comes from — but I do know I wish I had it. I remember when I was younger being just as active as they are. I don’t remember when that went away or how to find it again — or if that’s even possible.

What I do know is that if I was somehow able to get a hold of their energy — heck, even just a portion of it — my life would be so different. I imagine all the things I could accomplish, the things that would no longer be an issue for me and one way it could backfire on me.
