To be a kid !!! 19th Day

 I have a confession to make: I simply like kids……

Maybe it’s not “fashionable” statement as a parent of four on my own, or slightly “insane” in the eyes of the others. The truth is, I always did.  We can learn so much about life, just by watching them. Not, that raising my kids was …always easy, but on the other hand can’t complain too much. They are living, breathing, human beings and I never expected them to be perfect, after all I am not. I was hoping for and insisted on mutual respect, trust and understanding.

 Long time ago, when I was a kid, I made a promise to myself to always see children as a members of ”human family”, only with limited lifetime experience. Treat them as  an equal and not in the condescending way.

There was a movie  titled , “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”… it made me think about the fact, that many of us are born an “old soul” and grow up, to be the kids… I don’t mean of course in physical and mental aspect like in the movie but in the spiritual.

Kids are much smarter, more perceptive and sensitive then we credit them for …but they are also “program” to be kids. They love to laugh, be silly and mischievous, do crazy experiments, don’t listen to us ( some time…sorry kids L) and make their own mistakes…On the other hand, their appreciation of life’s everyday miracles, openness to the world, trust, readiness for friendships, willingness to learn, excitement, optimism, eagerness to offer and receive love …wonder of the simplest things..is breathtaking.

No surprise we wish so many times to be kids again, when the world was simpler, more fascinating and each day felt “like never ending story”.

I was “accused” few times of being childish …but I wasn’t hurt by that remark..it was my intention…to never give up my “inner child” . I saw too much of great potential in it.

Years ago, I was corresponding with my friend and reflecting on the fact that as we grow older, life seems to be losing its charm, every year passes us faster and faster …how to find that zest for life, we once had, as a children ?

 

My only answer to this dilemma was to travel back in your mind to childhood years and try to remember all things that made you happy, thrilled, amazed… Think about all the hobbies and likes and…bring it back to your life again…My guess is , if you loved something once ,even long time ago. ..you still do but maybe have forgotten and became  the "serious" adult with lots of responsibilities.  You've made a decision to outgrow the “wonder years".

 

 Probably you were so busy with your life: goals, work, family, responsibilities, you didn’t  even miss it at first. Then one day…you just couldn’t remember how “did you get here”.

It doesn’t have to be like that!

 We all, are involved fully in our adults life, but it doesn’t mean we have to neglect our most creative, pure, happy aspect of ourselves…our inner child !

Bring it back to life, become friends again. You will not regress, you will just embrace the wisdom of living each day fresh and new, finding joy and happiness inside of you and then, everywhere in the world.  You will laugh louder, smile more often,feel passionate about your life, forgive faster, love more intensely and unconditionally, be amazed by everyday miracles again and again...

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
