Your inner child

“You are so childish! Grow up!” – I hear this said in a caring tone with a smile on the persons face so many times ( a week) – and you know what? I like it to be like that.

Admit it, when no one is in a car with you, you sing out loud. When no one is looking, you get the urge to make bubbles in your drink with a straw or to separate the two parts and lick the middle first when eating an Oreo cookie!
Important thing is to know when to let your inner child shine through. Ok, there are serious situations where we need to take a stand, where we need to think and act as a grown up, but even at work, you need to be able to play around in order to let your inner child inspire your creativity.

As I was mentioning in many other posts, smiling to a person is the best gift you can give and it automatically makes you feel better as well (just don’t do it in a creepy way to strangers). Laugh out loud! When was the last time you really laughed so hard you almost peed your pants or the laughter made you cry? If you cannot remember when, then it was way too long.

“Smiling is infectious,
You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today,
And I started smiling too.”

So what if you might look silly while doing it? Do it anyways! Kids take new things and play with them, explore and study them until they find out if they like them or not. When was the last time you learned something new? Is your job challenging enough for you? Are you happy to go to work in the morning?

If the answer is no, you need to change something as you spend most of your lifetime at work, you need to ensure it is indeed the place you want to be, the place which helps you grow as a person.

“When in doubt, make a fool of yourself.  There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth.  So what the hell, leap.”
Cynthia Heimel

We all know kids are painfully honest, and I definitely recommend more diplomatic approach, at least at work but overall I am trying to keep that childlike sincerity at least in private relationships, it makes it so much more simple to communicate like that rather than beating around the bush, expecting people to read your mind and assuming how others feel or think about you – just say what you mean and listen more than you speak.

“We must teach our girls that if they speak their mind, they can create the world they want to see.”
Robyn Silverman

This takes effort, its’t not given. It doesn’t matter you know someone for years, you need to consciously invest your time and set your priorities in a way that people come first, your friends, family and coworkers…doesn’t matter who but people should always come before things (money included). When was the last time you gained a new friend? Do you let people come close enough to really get to know you?
Today we tend to be so busy that Facebook needs to remind us when our friends are having birthdays, we postpone coffees and hanging out with friends cause we really need to work, we tend to take more then we give. When was the last time you called your friend without actually needing something from them or just to say hi?

“We need old friends to help us grow old and
new friends to help us stay young.”

Release your inner child lovelies!

What an awesome post to read. Who says grown ups have to be grown ups all the time? I think it is important to remain a kid at heart. Kids have it so simple, fun, and easy, I guess we adults forget how to have fun and we worry wayyyy too much. I'm definitely bringing out the kid in me this Halloween. =) Have a happy weekend.

Thank you daring! Your comment made my foggy morning :) Indeed, I think keeping that kid in you alive keeps your creativity and spirits up in stressful situations, as we grow we take some things in life way to seriously while basic values stay neglected.
