Although I walk by the Photo Center door every day, it was when I was driving by one day I noticed it was shaped like a keyhole. After that, many strange things began to happen to me every time I walked by.
Quickly walking by one day, the heel on my high heels broke, another time, the wind blew away my scarf. That's when it occurred to me that this door was bidding me to come in.
Never seeing anyone coming in or out of that door, I wondered what could possibly be inside?
I cautiously opened the door and stepped inside and could hardly believe my eyes. It wasn't a Photo Center. There was a child's Ferris wheel and carousal, among other things. As I walked over to the carousal, I immediately became a child again.
When it was time for me to go, I walked out the door and became the adult me again, feeling happier than ever before.
Now realizing, child-like wonder and play is the 'key' to youthful happiness.
