I just love little kids with “Bed Head.” Note the giant smiles on the faces of those two cuties in the photograph. They’re not worried about keeping up appearances or fitting into the crowd. They’re just enjoying life – to the full!
I’ve been enjoying a bit of Bed Head lately too. It’s this quarantine. I don’t have to dress up for any engagements, show up to any luncheons or even don “business attire.” It’s FANTASTIC!
Charles and I have been using online platforms like Zoom meetings for a couple of years, but the quarantine has made “Zoom” meetings even better because now everyone is into it. Even teachers, parents and students are Zooming!
Don’t you LOVE how you can “Zoom” in your pajama bottoms and slippers and just throw on a decent top? No one cares!
Even professionals are dressing a lot more casual than usual during “Zooms,” and there’s something real and personal about it. Folks seem a lot less worried about keeping up appearances – just like the kids in the photo, they seem to be taking themselves less seriously.
As we would have said in the 70’s, “I can dig it!”
My bed head was so bad the other day that I decided to throw on a baseball cap while “Zooming.” Don’t worry, it was cute, and it sort of matched my top.
Now I rarely use the word “awesome” because I think it’s overused and people use it to describe things that are far less than awesome. But wearing a ball cap during a business meeting…that was awesome! You should try it sometime!
All of this got me to thinking about the lessons we can learn from little kids. Lessons like enjoying nature, cherishing family, welcoming newcomers, singing and dancing, sharing, loving fearlessly, trusting God, believing in miracles, taking ourselves a lot less seriously, and resting comfortably in our own skin – even with bed head!
I know this quarantine is a challenge for everyone, but it is my sincerest hope that all of you are enjoying a bit of rest and a whole lot of bed head!
