Publisher's Summary

Kidding is the new adulting.

Consider this your permission slip to relax, laugh, and finally find happiness. At once hilarious, irreverent, and downright inspiring, Kidding shows you how to connect with your inner child to make your mundane, complicated adult life much simpler (and happier). It's an audiobook about using your imagination and creativity to find joy and about being happier by being who you are - which is to say, by being a big kid at heart. 

Author Laura Jane Williams argues you can be an adult but still embrace childlike (not childish) tendencies: You can own your own home and still want to build a pillow fort when the mood strikes; you can pay your bills on time and still snuggle something soft against your face because you're sad; you can run a business and still take time to play. Divided into 40 short lessons, it's an accessible, fun introduction to the self-help world that anyone can stomach. 

Laura's experience as a nanny to three young, precocious children has transformed her view on life, and in this audiobook, she passes along the lessons she's learned from them. Because kids live in the present. They lose themselves in what they love, they show off, and they like themselves. Kids are curious by default, and they don't have limits because they haven't learned they exist yet. Kids do whatever the f--k they want, precisely because they want to. To put it simply, kids have the answers, man.

Wonderful!

This book is so insightful and helpful. It lights a spark of hope & gives you many a “Aha!” moment. It is a book I will return to whenever I feel “stuck” or need to get insight into why I’m feeling certain ways. Absolutely recommended for anyone who is feeling like their life and/or issues are overwhelming. This truly helps clear your mind and helps you gain an understanding of self.
