From 1945 to 1969 Art Linkletter had a segment on radio, then on his television show, called “Kids Say The Darndest Things” by asking simple questions and allowing children to answer, unprompted and uncensored, he gave the world a glimpse at the inner workings of a child’s mind. The answers he got may have made the parents cringe but the audiences laughed in delight. That was because the answers were always profound, if only in their innocence.
I was reminded of this when I got a book in the mail this week, co-edited/authored by Moira Tuffy, and Danish game maker, Martin Andersen, titled I’M SO FULL OF HAPPY TODAY: The Hygge Wisdom of Children. All around the world, children are full of happy from the wisdom that can only be borne of innocence. I invite you to tap into that innocent place that still dwells deep inside you to have a look at the world with child-like wonder again. I guarantee it will make you full of happy too! It’s what the world needs right now.
