I don’t think that childhood is the best time in a person’s life. What makes many people think that way is perhaps because, as children, we play in the moment without allowing the past and the future anxieties to haunt us and to steal the joy, which makes us over the moon, away from our playtime.
Think about it, as adults, we don’t have a lot of playtime. To feel like playing while doing our best to make ends meet, we are aspired to have a career; instead of a job, because the former is infused with passion and the latter is…well…a realistic way keep us alive.
Since we don’t get to play a lot as adults, why are we still sacrificing and wasting our precious playtime by tainting it with negative thoughts and emotions? Can we just be more disciplined to order ourselves to put our anxieties to rest and to bring out the inner child, letting him or her have the fun time of his or her life?
I think we can do that. We just have to act today.
