4 Childhood Activities You Should Never Give Up


4. Building Pillow Forts

You own your stuff. It doesn't own you. Is your couch telling you you can't set its cushions up as walls and drape them as a blanket? Have I just not been listening carefully enough?

Besides being fun, here's a grown-up reason for building pillow forts: because you can. Because if you've ever felt trapped by your surroundings, or stuck in a rut, or just bored, you can take control of your situation (and your furniture) and do something completely different and unconventional with it. And then you realize: you're free. You just have to stop listening to your furniture and start listening to possibility.
