yesterday i was at a store and saw something that took me back to my childhood - those candies shaped like orange slices that are like gumdrop jelly covered with sugar. on an impulse i bought a package. i rarely do anything like that - just see something i want and buy it. i'm more likely to tell myself that i don't need it or not to waste the money or it is silly - or somehow talk myself out of it. this time i just did it. and as i was enjoying them i realized i was doing it for my inner child - and he was smiling. it didn't cost much and - darn it - i'm worth it!

so - let me encourage you - what could you do for your inner child today? try to make him happy for a change.
