I came across this quote and I couldn’t stop thinking about my childhood. All that ran in my mind was the way I enjoyed life, laughing as loud as I could, excitement to little things of life, crying outdoor wasn’t uncomfortable at all, Waving at a stranger with a smile was absolute fun. All I knew was that the world is a beautiful place. Dreaming without limitations was my favourite pass time and now if I look at the way I live it isn’t as fun as before. Dreams come with conditions applied, talking to a stranger feels uncomfortable, hiding emotions outdoor is the toughest, laughing loud means uninvited attention. When someone tries to be nice to us, we wonder what they want from us. We all love our childhood days, we all want to maintain the innocence but unknowingly tend to lose it as we grow.
I totally agree things aren’t the same as we grow, we are indebted to look at the reality, practicality and responsibility of life but somewhere is the process of creating the person we want to be we miss out to appreciate the little emotions which adds so much value to life.
This quote reminds me of a line which goes like this “Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the hell happened!” We all know how much more we can add to life but somehow we lack an effort to make it happen 🙂 Whenever you feel it’s hard to handle the tough world, more often the child inside you still whispers ” Don’t worry it’s fun out there” but i guess we have to be a little sensitive to listen . Embrace the child, pamper it and love it as it will add more flavours to the person you are and makes you feel nicer and more adorable 🙂
