“Great is the man who has not lost his childlike heart.”
At the end of another busy year, when our Christmas lists begin to grow and party invites begin to flood in. Let’s remember to stop and take time away from all the busyness and seriousness of life and remember to see life through the eyes of a child.
When was the last time you really laughed or did something just for fun? We are all under a lot of pressure in today’s society. We have the demands of family life, work pressures, bills to pay and little time to create the perfect christmas for the perfect family!
Regardless of the illusion that we believe we have to live up to, if you can make time to remember what it is like to be a child again, you will find, joy, trust, curiosity, imagination and fun and begin to see how serious we are!
“I like crazy, childlike, candy bar filled cakes with gooey caramel, chocolate-covered nuts, marshmallows and the like.” – Ron Ben-Israel
Find that special memory in your heart that made you feel free as a child. Grab the keys, head to the beach and sit with an ice-cream or a good book. Tell your kids a story about when you were young and try to re-create it with them. Get on some skates or go to a park and just be.
There is so many ways to escape our day-to-day stress. Tap into your inner child and find the joy in every situation.
None of us know how long we are here, so make all your moments important and precious. Be spontaneous!
