Here’s to the saying “not every wandering mind is lost”, “not every stubborn child is bad”. The reason being the first category is a synonym for people with “childlike” innocence while the other category is a synonym for “childish”.
A child’s innocence is loved by all and cherished for years. Similarly, if an adult is seen to be enjoying a given situation with complete attention and innocence is no less than childlike innocence, which must be supported and cherished. But this world looks at things with a different eye. They think either the adult is faking the emotion or had gone insane…. But but but people….. Please understand nothing is wrong in living the given situation with a childlike innocence and loving and caring the other person with whole heart. It’s just called as being your true self while not letting the innocent mind be tamed by the cruel outside world.
Yes do understand that there is no harm in dancing to your favourite tune in the middle of the road (well as long as you don’t disturb others in any way), there is no harm in singing loud your crafted (non-rhythm) poem under the shower (while you have acquaintances at your place), there is no harm in lovingly eating your favourite (not so famous) dish in public ….. All these and many such situations are nothing but you being your true self and no else…. But alas wish this terrible world would understand this.
And just to add to your information, being childlike has other advantages too. Like curiously enquiring about things you don’t know, and people fall for answering to your innocent questions. It brings out the creative side of you because in this you aren’t worried about “what this world is thinking of you”, rather you are just being the creative you :). Many more advantages to list just in case sheer pure joy (of being childlike) isn’t motivating you enough!!!
So, now that you know being “childlike” is next to awesome, how do you now revert yourself back to those golden days? Well…..keep reading and hop onto a couple of solutions below and uncover the world in front of you with a new colorful eye……..But do bear in mind while you start a new “childlike” journey of yourself, this does not mean you are running away from your responsibilities and duties. You must definitely perform those duties and live those relationships but being more (childlike) humans rather than being robots.
A creativity call:
Whatever you are doing, just for a change think of how a child might have done the same task. Set your mind free to be creative enough with that task at hand and just don’t bother about the world or about the outcome of the task. Just set yourself free……the creative child inside of you will pop out by itself.
Play that skip:
Be energetic, be flexible. Go out, move that body, kick that ball, skip that dusty skipping rope, hop that frog jump………just do it………..trust me……….no one is watching 🙂 and the health n mind benefits from exercise is just amazing 🙂
Live the moment right:
Nah, don’t let yesterday’s talk clutter your mind or tomorrow’s meetings thoughts snuggle your sleep………learn to live in the moment and enjoy every second, every moment………..being in the present moment is all it takes 🙂
Say it loud:
You liked that hairstyle for that young lady? You admire that guy? You like your boss’s dress? You didn’t like her behavior? You want to see changes around you?……….then just say it, remember to say it loud but in a tone which is soothing and not hurting to anyone in any manner……….Say it for the saying reaches the deepest depth and the highest height if it’s both true and polite 🙂
“Benefit of doubt” time:
Aha……that young lad betrayed you and you know it………..yes, she ditched him and you saw it……….well………..come what may always give the opposite person the “benefit of doubt”, forgive them and move on. Because fitting the odd in finding the reasoning behind every such occurrence you encounter is nothing but a loss of your own precious “Me”/Childlike time which otherwise could be well utilized 🙂
Relaxing is the key:
Don’t stress yourself with anything and everything………you aren’t a machine to always be occupied with something or the other in your head………give your busy mind some rest, at times just don’t do anything………just absolutely nothing………..sit back………..relax………but be watchful about your relaxation though so you can feel the difference between a relaxed mind and occupied mind…………trust me relaxing will not only add to your health benefits but also make your mind capable enough to deal with the next big thing in just no time. And as the saying goes, “No time is waste of time”; and so is your relax time 😉
Cheers to all the lovely kids out there and here’s to the newest/possible/amazing journey of we adults to become and remain “Childlike” so that we can love and live a life which we just simply dream about.
Love to all the childlike people ❤
