“Adults aren’t generally struck with the urge to skip because their worries and burdens weigh them down and they forget that they can take themselves lightly.”

Jessi Lane Adams

“Skipping is jumping for joy, step after step…”

“Skipping turns –
moping into hoping,
pity into giddy,
sad into glad,
lazy into crazy,
old into bold,
tired into wired!”

Terri Guillemets
