Where Did They Go?
Why is it that we drop all of our childlike wonder as we “age”? What made us think that childlike innocence is not needed in our future “grown-up” life? The best things in life are usually pointed out by a child. The sweetness of discovery and awe for all things… have we really forgotten how to live?
The Life of Children
All children radiate happiness with their wonder towards everything that they see and maybe that’s why us “adults” are so fond of children. Yes they have energy, but what gives them that energy? Children enjoy each moment and they often approach an object or situation with the same wonder and awe. They really are amazing.
Can you remember the wonder you once had as a child for nature, animals, people, and adventure?
Some of my childhood memories were to:
play board games and card games with family members
Watch the clouds
ride my bike
draw with sidewalk chalk
build an inside chair fort
