My kids made this the other day, and my 8 year-old son said about it:
"If you wear these then whenever you fall down, you'll always land on your feet."
The writing business and the acting business have a lot in common:
- They're both about storytelling.
- They're both about finding the emotional truth of each moment.
- They both involve a lot of rejection.
And you'll be a lot better off if you can always land on your feet.
How my kids picked up on that is anybody's guess. But I'm so glad they did. Theirs are words to live by.
What have you learned from the kids in your life lately?
