I feel that sometimes we need reminding that we are natural conduits for the rivers of life's potential. But with our minds and society constantly imposing limiting social norms, ideals and expectations - there's a lot in this world that can stop the natural flow of our growth, learning, contentment and ultimately allowing this potential to manifest.
Children are so intuitive with technology and it's amazing how quickly they learn to use a device, even at an extremely young age.
