And how about that wonderful 'I love Lucy'? We adored her wacky antics and the predictable messes she created!
Both of these characters represent aspects of our personalities that we tend to leave behind in childhood.

In reality by acknowledging these parts of ourselves and getting comfortable with them we can harness this energy and use it in a way to enhance our lives.
