The child in you


Ever wondered why children forget pain and disappointments faster than adults? Perhaps, it is because they live life fully with every breath they take in. By instinct they know that each moment has something good to offer us, although, sometimes, the goodness comes disguised.

It is because children know how to trust life that they are smiling most of the time. They know that tomorrow’s answers will come tomorrow and so they concentrate on ‘today’ and ‘now’. The other important quality in children is self-trust. Although they appreciate praise and feel hurt when criticized, they do not judge themselves by the opinion of others. A child is happy to be what his heart wants.

Often, I feel that the child is dormant in each one of us. Why not rekindle the joy of child-like innocence and hope? Why not trust the process of life?

Perhaps, bygone days will not come back but lost happiness can definitely be found again. Just awaken the child in you and see the difference in your life.

A lovely and a thought provoking article. Its so true that retaining the child in us will revitalise our soul and give us immense joy. In this fast paced lifestyles people have almost forgotten to derive joy in the simplest forms-which kids never fail to do.

Nice post> Children do not also have high expectations and are are easily pleased.That is the reason we see children smiling more than adults.I am not sure whether we can bring out the child in us when we get older and wilier.
