Have You Been Kind To Your Inner Child Today? Here’s One Woman’s Self-Care Ritual.

A woman treats herself to a Shirley Temple.

It started out as a childhood whim, but it became a way of life! A woman on TikTok shared that she once promised herself that, when she grew up, she’d let herself have a Shirley Temple whenever she felt like it. As an adult, she hasn’t outgrown that wish; in fact, she makes herself this classic soda drink on the regular. What a beautiful reminder to us all that we’re never too old to continue doing the things that make us happy and appealing to our inner child!

Many users left positive comments on the video, including their own wholesome childhood memories and upgraded Shirley Temple recipes.

“I’m a waitress at a 50s style diner and it is the SWEETEST thing when an adult gets all excited that we do shirley temples,” added one commenter. “Heal that inner child bby.”
