the wagon: embracing the "what ifs"

Little people are far more creative than adults.  Whereas adults see an object and immediately visualize the object being used as it is intended, little people see an object and visualize possibility.  They are not bound by actualities and instead focus on the "what ifs".  They are filled with the desire to explore, engage, learn.  They play.  And through their play with the "what ifs" they discover their world and they discover their own potential and capabilities.

Wouldn't it be great if as adults we kept that curiosity and wonder and allowed ourselves to explore the "what ifs" rather than cling to the actualities?

Think of the joy and confidence that would thrive in the world.
