Does it really sound great and feels good to know we are grown up? Let us find out.
When we were kids, there were several instances when we tried to imitate our elders. We fancied the life our parents, uncle and aunts used to live. We craved for the freedom to do anything and everything.
Today, as adults, we admire the life of kids. We find happiness in all the small pleasures they take. We dream of living life as a kid again. Why!!!
Kids do not know about stress. They are unaware of this complicated world. They do not know about rich or poor. They do not distinguish people on the basis of color, language, caste, creed or religion. They do not know about ego, greed, money, jealousy, hatred or competition. They understand only one language and that is the language of love.
They know how to forget and forgive. They know how to embrace someone who makes them cry.They know that a smile can make others happy. They know how to get what they want without harming others. They never try to impress but know how to express. They do not know fear. They are not bothered about others because they know how to stay busy. They know their worth. They never depend on others to be happy.
Kids explore. They experiment. They learn. They laugh. They live their life!
We feel we are all grown up. We realized this when we were gifted with a son who taught us that life is very simple. Since then, we are living life as a kid again because, we now know that no one is going to get out alive anyway.
