When we were kids we hadn’t learned how to talk ourselves out of getting some dirt, grime and grit on our new bike. It was more than Okay to acquire a little grit and grime.
The grit, grime and a grease tattoo on the back of the leg were a price of doing business: not an indicator of failure and mistakes.
Clean, polished and shiny didn’t get you very far in my neighbourhood. When did we allow ourselves to start substituting clean, shiny and fitting in for adventure and playfulness?
Do you know why we were so good at playing and making up our own games when we were kids?
We relayed on ‘Raw Movement’, created our own rules. and we didn’t sit around waiting for permission.
I grew up on the Great White North of the Canadian Prairies. Imagination and playfulness was my key to freedom. I played on Death Stars and battled the evil Empire. Zipping around on my bike I would make the jump into light speed and then immediately help an alien phone home. My belt became my trusted bull whip out in the hay fields searching for hidden treasures that would lead me to the lost Arc. Just like Indiana Jones, I too hated snakes, so did my best to avoid them.
Our imagination and playfulness was the key to freedom adventure and vitality; not our garmin, heart rate monitor and strava profile.
Surprises were always just around the next corner.
Funny how forty years later these same surprises have now become problems.
As kids we were creative and could solve our own problems. Two shoes instantly became the goal posts. You learned at a young age to play ball hockey against a building otherwise you were chasing that frozen ball more than when you were playing.
How many variations of tag did you play? You didn’t keep playing the same one day after day.
We were creative and hadn’t put ourselves in that squeaky clean little box. This creativity constantly allowed us to keep learning.
You can keep your 5 second rule. It’s just a little dirt, grime and muck.
It doesn’t mean we are flawed and doing something wrong. The grit, grime and muck is all apart of being human and imperfect. Somewhere along the line we have forgotten that playfulness and raw movement is the key to vitality at any age.
