My Daily Observation: 10/6/17

Danny

Yesterday I wrote about how I grew up a little bit in relation to my favorite sports teams.  The fact is that I needed to grow up a little, but I don’t want to grow up too much.  I do want to maintain some of that child-like enthusiasm for life.  I don’t know a lot of people who have kept their inner-child alive.

I noticed this week that it is incredibly important to do child-like things that remind us of simpler times; that remind us of what life is really about.  Adulting fogs the window of life.  Being an adult and growing up is not always something to wear like a badge of honor.  Don’t get me wrong I think it is important to act grown up sometimes and be responsible, but sometimes we need to be a little irresponsible.

It is good for the soul to roll around in the grass every once-in-a-while.  It is reinvigorating to walk in the rain.  It can be so peaceful watching the birds or clouds.  Or maybe color in a coloring book.  We need to actively seek to keep our inner-child alive.

What do you do to keep the kid inside of you alive?

  1. I let the kid inside of me play a little everyday. It can be art making or something else. I always try to let the kid in me take part. I get wiser as a grown up me then I think 🙂

  2. The kid inside of me is alive and well. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 1 year old granddaughter. Yesterday, I was helping my daughter build a solar robot and playing Lego Star Wars. Today, I was dancing to the music of Barney and Friends with the baby. This will do it.

  3. I do immature stuff like creep around on Facebook and look at pictures of people I don’t even know. Towards the end of their pictures I usually have my own story of their whole life, stewed up in my head!

    I was just talking to my mom on the phone today about how every once in a while, we need to take a break from, adulting. I thought it was pretty cool you had the same idea in writing!

  4. Danny, I challenged you for something totally different! The seven day, seven black and white photos, no people, no explanation, just what you see in everyday life. Each day you choose a new person to challenge.

  5. Honestly, I think the kids keep it alive at the moment. Especially my daughter. And I love her for that. But also my son. He has his goofy moments and then it’s just the two of us goofy-ing out while my husband and my daughter just look at us with that kind of look…
