Wake up your inner child, it’s time to wake up!

Remember when you were a child and everything seemed so simple? It was a time when anything was possible, a time when you were asked what you wanted to be, what you want to do and what you would like to experience. You were told try this and experience that. You were told that you should never say you don’t like something until you at least try it once. But then suddenly we are told you cannot do this or that, you have to be realistic and accept where you are or what you are capable of, and no you should try everything! So where did this part of life change?

The truth is as human beings we are bound to be full of insecurity and complexity when we are shown a door full of beauty and light as a child, where our imaginations run wild with anticipation. Only to have the door slammed shut on our fingers when we get to the age we might actually start enjoying all the experiences. So I say hold on to that child inside you and never let them go.

It is the child inside you that motivates your dreams, puts a smile on your face and keeps you searching for something better in your life. The old saying goes, “You are as old as you feel.” Well sometimes I feel like and old man and quite frankly during those times I notice how quickly things around me deteriorate. So I have vowed to hang on to that child I was, because quite frankly I like the person he was and I know for sure that he would never stop trying to achieve and never accept that there are impossibilities in this world. Wake up your inner child, it’s time to really grow up!

  1. I’m not sure who I inherited it from but my inner child is very important in my life and is the reason at 64 I still ride the swings in the park, blow bubbles and whenever the few and far between times come around when I can ride a Merry-go-Round…well, I’m all smiles and happiness! 🙂 Thanks for a wonderful post…I enjoy each and every one that you write…you are so gifted with words and you truly inspire us all. 🙂 My fav pix: 1st in 1st row, 1st and 3rd in 3rd row; 1st and 3rd in 5th row. 🙂

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ I also think there’s a little child in all of us and we all to often forget to let the child out to play. Let’s face it, as adults we are expected to act like adults right? Wrong. I think we will never grow up in some ways I still like to blow bubbles (making my own using washing detergent) or eating ice creams while wandering around the park. Life is more simple when we were a child 🙂 But none the less, we still can have grown-ups-fun as grown ups! *tequila~&~rumba~*


    1. Absolutely Seth! Best of both worlds!!!
      Always great to see you.
      Hope you have a great day, take care Alan


  3. Now I miss the little girl who dreamed of having different flavor of juices in her home when she grows up — all because I only got to drink juice occasionally. It was so exciting thinking about the violet grape, red strawberry, yellow pineapple, and orange orange 🙂

    ‘Everything is beautiful but beautiful isn’t everything’ — so meaningful to me. Can I post this in my place when suited? 🙂
