Imagine seeing the first snowfall of the year through the eyes of a child. The wonder when they look out the window and see the world covered in white for the first time. They understand that this is something different – it’s a magical moment. The world becomes a place where, overnight, everything can change.
We may not be able to relive the magical wonder of seeing our first snow. But no matter how old we become, we can still experience new things and the magic that those experiences bring.
Do you have a bucket list? Think about the things you hope to experience someday.
One important idea to keep in mind is that those experiences do not have to be grand or daring. Simple experiences are just as meaningful: dancing in the rain, sleeping under the stars, being an extra in a theater production.
An experience that should be on everyone’s list is making a difference in someone else’s life. And just like those other bucket list items, this one does not have to be a grand gesture.
Our philosophy is to cherish the small moments. Something as simple as following through with a prompting to share a little love with a card or a gift can change your perspective and the perspective of others. Just like a little snow can change the whole world for a child, a simple act of kindness can change someone’s life.
