I just overheard two boys that couldn’t be much more than 8 years old laughing hysterically.
I looked over to see what was so funny and saw that they were looking at the front cover of Bill Clinton’s autobiography “My Life” all the while whispering about how he had some “hard” choices to make lol
Man, I can’t stop laughing right now… kids know a lot more than we give them credit for.
I wonder what it would be like to see the world through their eyes again?
Wouldn’t it be nice to go back and really live!
When you were a kid it didn’t matter what was happening tomorrow, or how much money you had. It was all irrelevant.
All you worried about was whether or not you could go on that play-date with Andrew or go on that field-trip to the museum of science.
Having fun was all that you thought about and living for the moment was all that you knew.
I know that’s how It was for me, for a little while anyways.
There must be a way that you can still be an “adult” and not lose that “childlike” way of looking at things, that look that makes things so clear and brilliant and easy; not complex.
Because lets face it, we’re all going to die someday and the problems are never going to disappear.
We’re always going to have major obstacles in our way, monstrous issues that we most face at every turn, but it’s how we choose to look at them that will make all the difference.
You know, the more I think about it, maybe the problems are all part of living. How boring would life be if you never had anything to work for? Never had a challenge to overcome?
Maybe nothing makes sense to you right now, but maybe that’s the point? Maybe it’s not supposed to?
All I’m saying is that our existence wouldn’t seem so unforgiving, so difficult if we just let it all go and said “Fuck it” I’m not going to take this so seriously anymore! I’m going to look at my life through the eyes of an 8 year old.
And I don’t mean that you should stop caring about your life, I’m saying that you should stop caring about the things you can’t control in regards to your life.
You’ll be a lot happier, believe me.
