My sister and I instantly smiled and laughed a bit at her sweet innocence, but then I thought how I want that to be my statement in life. I wish that were the one thing on my mind that I really had to contemplate. Not work, not money, not stress. Just cartwheels.
Then I thought to myself, when did we stop doing cartwheels? I can't think of a more silly and carefree expression. I remember when I played soccer as a young girl, and my coach made us run laps because we wouldn't stop doing cartwheels on the field. Sure, you can blame "maturity" or the fact that people may think it's odd that a 28-year old woman is doing cartwheels in public, but I think the world might just be a slightly better place if we didn't take ourselves so seriously and did a few more cartwheels.
