That feeling, that zest for life is the essence of ‘Dare to Be D.I.N.O!’ And it was inspired by my son Quinn, on his 8th birthday.
Let me introduce you to him. Quinn finds the joy in life without being encumbered by the opinions and biases of everyone and everything going on around him. It is embedded in his heart, his attitude, and his vision for the future. My son truly lives in a colorful world that is bright, fun, and filled with plenty of time to play. Time to revel. Time to feel pure happiness.
Quinn is a great example of what it takes for us, as adults- to ‘Dare to Be D.I.N.O!’
Quinn LOVES dinosaurs. It’s a passion of his. At a time when most kids usually outgrow their interest in dinos, his lived on. We have dino shirts, pillows, toys, discovery games, board games, blankets, books and many other dinosaur-themed objects. For his eighth birthday, I made him a 3-D Dinosaur cake. It filled him with blissful joy… and chocolate cake.
Are you filled with joy?
Joy is defined differently for all of us, but how we find it is very similar. A key element to rediscovering the joy in our life is to have vision; a clear vision of what we want, of what we can be, of what is available to us and knowing the steps necessary to achieve that vision.
No matter what your passion, your circumstances, your surroundings, no matter what your friends, family or coworkers think… you can find joy! Just as the dinos brought joy to my boy Quinn.
