One day last week, my daughter told me that right in the middle of class, her teacher, middle-aged, mother of two, did a cartwheel right in the middle of a lesson, and cartwheeled right back to her original position and said, with a great big smile on her face, ” I’ve still got it!“ and the whole class just roared with laughter! I thought to myself, “Wow! How great it must feel to be so free at heart, even in the midst of a busy workday, right in front of a class full of fifth-graders, turning cartwheels!”
For me, this teacher’s exclamation of “I’ve still got it!” implies so much more… It not only speaks of her impressive physical capabilities, but also of her ability to seize the day, enjoy the moment, and keep the “kid” inside alive!
i love knowing people such as her that can still grab the day and make it special in every way
I know what you mean. I motivates me to do the same. Thanks Terry!
It reminds me of a time when my sixteen year old daughter and I went grocery shopping and she did that inside the store.I thought we need to keep us all young at heart even if we are not physically able. Thanks for the reminder.
True! It’s more than just physical. I believe that having this frame of mind, helps us emotionally and spiritually as well! Thanks for sharing.
Refreshing indeed… Thanks for sharing.
How great was that? She showed those kids that life should be filled with those great moments! I bet they won’t ever forget that day!
Like! Ima “I’ve still got it” type, but on smaller scale. If I did a cartwheel now, bones would break…my Dr wouldn’t be happy. But I sure surprise my granddaughter now & thn… ;D
Oh….and my photo wouldn’t look like the one above. However …in my mind it does!
Just like with my scooter…I feel like a ninja!
