How does he know that? 8/6

The children that I nanny for; George (6) and Clayton (4) are wise beyond their years. Maybe all children are this way..but I currently am experiencing the wisdom of these two.

One day while driving Clay to speech class we were talking about the day ahead. He was asking what will we do after speech. The boys are both big on “what’s next.”

So I told him it was a light day and we could just go watch a movie or do something simple to unwind.

Clay asked “What does unwind mean?” So as best as I could explain it I said to relax, chill out…just be.

When Clay learns a new word he likes to rhyme it. So then he came up with this little nugget of truth. He said ok:

“Relax, unwind…get out of your mind.”

I laughed and I told him “Exactly!” and that we should make that into a bumper sticker.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
