Through The Eyes Of A Child

Paulo Coelho has said that . . .

“A child can teach an adult three things:

 to be happy for no reason,

 to always be busy with something,

and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.”

Being an adult is a constant reminder of our responsibilities, all the while forgetting how to LIVE LIFE FULLY.  We remember to be an active participant of the “rat race” while forgetting what it’s like to “slow down and smell the roses.”

As adults, I believe we can learn much when we view the world through the eyes of a child.

Here are 5 beautiful ways in which children live and the valuable lessons they teach us!

#1 THEY LIVE IN THE MOMENT

Children don’t dwell on the past and certainly do not worry about the future.  They fully enjoy the HERE AND NOW! For them, the present moment IS the only moment!

#2 THEY ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH

Children always say what’s on their mind.  They say what they mean, and truly mean what they say, making no apologies for it.  They have not been jaded, so for them HONESTY is the only way.

#3 THEY KNOW HOW TO FORGIVE

Children get upset at each other, THEN they get over it.  They apologize when it’s appropriate and move on.  They don’t dwell on what was done to them and “rehash” a situation.  It happens, they argue, they forgive. DONE!

#4 THEY LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY

Their love is pure and their motives are genuine.  They love without an agenda and hold nothing back. They feel free to express their love without reservations.

#5 THEY ARE ALWAYS THEMSELVES

Children understand the simplicity of just being themselves.  They don’t get caught up in trying to impress anyone. They don’t place emphasis on how they may come across to others, THEY JUST ARE!

 Through My Eyes

I know children are supposed to learn from me, but through the years, as I’ve watched them closely, I am aware of how much MORE they have taught me!

And although they are oblivious to how much of an impact they’ve had,

I would be a fool not to follow their lead on how to live this one life!
