My Daily Observation: 10/6/17


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…

  6. I think my best friend and I have a connection that will keep us from ever becoming “real” adults… Whenever we spend time together, we become 2 little girls, and no one could guess how old we are… Wether it is playing “I’ll embarrass you in public” (Jess finds it really funny to tell cashiers not to take my money because it is dirty when we go shopping together) or just doing kids crafting at home while talking about all and everything (My mom always inherits our work of art in the end… I wonder why we didn’t think about making drawings she could hang on the fridge… Because she would!) It seems we naturally remind each other not to take ourselves seriously…
