I saw this journal entry written by a 2nd grader on Twitter and thought I would share it here. My attempted translation is below. Warning: I don’t translate, so it might not be the best translation but hopefully it gets the point across!
Teacher said nothing comes for free
But there are a lot of free things
Breathing in air is free
The ability to speak is free
Smelling flowers is free
Looking at the sky is free
Growing older is free
Listening to the wind is free
Smiling is free
Dreams are free
Ant watching is free
My last post was reflective but also kind of depressing, so I thought I would lighten the mood by sharing this sweet poem. Sometimes you realize that enjoying the simple things in life can make you happy.
I hope this brightened everyone’s day.
Thanks for reading!
