When I say the word ‘Kids’, all of a sudden we’ll say “I love kids”; Of Course, everyone loves. But in contrast, I love being a kid! I often ask my mom, “Can’t we be kids forever?”! She will smile and say, “I too wanted to be”!! I asked this Q as such it came out of my mouth. But then, I realised what made me to ask this Q which had a lot of answers in it. Being a kid, we always had a hand full of cherish able memories. By those times, we were amused by things like Barbie dolls, cartoons, toys, etc. When we happen to see kids playing, it reminds us of those days when we were kids. We didn’t care about the world. When we were kids, we’d get disheartened about not being adults to do our things by our own. Now, things has reversed.
Those times, we don’t understand how the world works, from where money comes? We lived in a world with no rules but with imaginations. We lived life to the fullest. But, these days there are so many things that I need to think of. We have families, jobs, responsibilities to take care of. I cannot do things which am crazy about. Our responsibilities started building up when we finishes up our degree. After that we get stuck in the real world with tasks, promotions, deadlines. But, is it possible to have the same kids world again? Yes. It is to live your life right now, but by adding some colours and fun to it like when you were a kid.
In my childhood days, we used to play outside with our friends. I used to play with my sister (Mostly we fought each other; but that gave us a strong bond). We play chess, snake ladder, while telling this story, I myself want to play outside like a kid. I know we don’t find time to play all these things. Our hands are tied with work & our mind with stress, anger, frustration. At times, I used to think like a kid. Kids will always enjoy with their present, no future worries or past tensions. Actually, we also, had this inbuilt quality in us, later on we forgot those divine qualities!! In those childhood days, we had one good thing in us, that is Innocence. Somewhere the way, we lost that innocence. But deep down in us lies the childhood innocence.
Let yourself go and find your favourite childish behaviour. Get the wild things inside of you. It may be colouring, building castles with sand, reading books all day, etc. While doing this, do this full heartedly. Don’t worry about your promotion, kids school or loss in share market. Just go out and have fun. I always had a wish if god appears before me, I prefer to be child forever. So, am going to ring my mom and ask “Can’t we be kids forever?”!!
