Look at the world with the heart and eyes of a child

MP900426559When we are young the world seems so new and there is nothing that can hold us down for long. When  we grow old we forget how wonderful this world truly is. When we are a child we find delight in the simple things in life. When we are grown up we think money and possessions are what makes our life have worth. Seems to me we had more wisdom as children than as adults and we knew what life was really about back we were young. We grew older and colder as time went on, we have forgotten how to be our true selves and lost the spirit of happiness. We get consumed by our work, bills and the daily fight to survive. We forget to stop and smell the roses, we forgot how to play and have fun. We worry too much about what other people may think or say if we let loose and be silly.  Some of us have even became bitter from all the harshness we have faced in our adult years.

MP900444203 Life is not a job, it’s a chance to be who you are to the fullest and a chance to experience the world we live in. We should look at the world with the heart and eyes of a child, we should see the beauty and wonder of this world we live in. We should leave behind the bitterness and mistrust we have learned to have through all these years and embrace the spirit of friendship and community. We shouldn’t allow our jobs and/or careers to be the main focus of our life. We should make our family and our friends the main priority in our life because they are what makes our life worth living. We should love and forgive like we did as children and live each day like it’s a new adventure not like it’s another day to survive.

Life is what you make it, for your life and world can only be the way you choose to perceive it.
