We all would have enjoyed our childhood days with so much of cherished moments, abundant of happiness for small things, silly fights that wouldn’t last for more than a couple of hours and not knowing the meaning of ego. All we were doing is to eat, study, sleep nicely and have just a couple of friends to talk things that were beyond our knowledge. Being ignorant had its own advantages at this age.
We felt so secure, with our parents there to bag us from any sort of trouble, covering us with the warmth of love and care, day and night. We tend to get satisfied easily and get rid of angst with a small grin. There were literally no responsibilities and things to fight for. Everything wished had come our way along with tons of happiness.
But responsibilities and trouble started to grow as we grow and move away from childhood. Things start to get different and our mind and heart never gets satisfied easily. Our perception towards everything has changed and we always have a doubt and insecurity. That simple faith seem to be vanished somewhere in the process. We feel that we’re grown up and know everything and we are always correct, until that simple lesson life teaches us.
Every person will have a child inside him/her. There’s nothing wrong in unleashing the character and be your childself (don’t google it, the word doesn’t exist!). Jump in joy for small happiness in life; have a silly talk with your dear ones; if something hurts you badly, cry it out and throw away from your heart. You don’t even have to let others know about this but let your heart inculcate the habit of a child.
We had never taken anything serious under the sun when we were a kid. So why do we want to be serious after grown-up? Actually growing-up meant to be growing wiser day after day. But it seems to be completely the other way (in the context of life). We were so good when we were a kid, but as we grow up, that good and wise things had gone down gradually and all other unwanted things started occupying our mind and soul and corrupted the system.
So let’s not just stick to this adulthood, grown-up mentality, and be a child-like person whenever possible. Be like a kid when you are with your loved ones; shower that unadulterated care, take everything in an easy way, don’t let worry enter your heart, shoo it away; we will never get hurt or tend to feel bad towards life’s challenges. Being like this will help us to have a corrupt-free and happy mind :)
