A child. Even the word is enough to light up anyone’s face. The instantaneous thought that comes to one’s mind when they think of a child is a laughing, gullible, innocent face. Any baby, who does nothing more than wave his or her arms, is the trigger for the crowd to start laughing at it.
Childhood consisting of predominantly play, fun, pranks, mischief and games is considered one of the best stages of life. From the most petty events, such as receiving s chocolate, to larger ones like the festival of Diwali makes any child bubbling with excitement and et out a crackle of exhilaration.
Children are such pure beings, with the most benevolent hearts; rarely are they spotted fighting as they never think foul for anyone. Their happiness lies in watching cartoon while their largest concern is to step only on the edges of tiles when walking.
Every child has a nagging question: what happens to adults? Why do they lose their joy of life and are rarely seen enjoying? Why are adults always surly and worried about everything? Why are they always quarrelling over things which are of no importance?
We should ask ourselves these questions. As we grow older and experience more of the world, where does the child inside if us disappear? Many of us believe we are being tormented by the daily struggles of our lives. Some of us are enduring financial issues while others are tackling family problems. According to a survey, 5% of the adult population lives in stress.
We should all rethink, are our concernes really of prodigious importance? Are they worthy of destroying our mental happiness? Can we deal with hem without getting stressed and depressed?
After all, the main purpose of our lives is living it in a happy way, without any regrets and enjoying the trivial pleasures like the pitter patter of rain and the intoxicating smell of old books.
From now on, let us live our lives like a child; with excitement tingling under our skin and optimism radiating from our faces.
