Don’t be afraid to be a child again and live life to the fullest

comment Updated: Jun 03, 2016 11:12 IST

Do you remember when we were children, when happiness came from small things like an ice cream or a chocolate. There were no limitations, no boundaries to our imagination, nothing was impossible for us, and we believed in our dreams with our heart and soul.

We did not know what was giving up or the fear that we could never be able to do it; we believed that one day we would master the skill.

Then, we grew up. We started believing in ourselves a little less or let’s just say that we had no faith in ourselves and thereby put limitations on ourselves. Most of those were creations of our own cowardly mind. Things like fear, rejection, hard work, social pressure started haunting our dreams. We forgot to wear those rose-tinted glasses.

But what stops us from becoming like a child again?

Our world needs a bit of imagination and it needs to learn to dream again. It is not bad to be practical but it is definitely wrong to stop dreaming for oneself.

So, give wings to the dreams and passions that you have harboured for so long as it’s never too late. Remember that the only limitations we have are the ones that we put on ourselves.

Find the child within you again; laugh as if no one’s watching and without a care in the world, start humming your favourite songs again, dance as if no one’s looking and, most of all, take out time to do the things that you love .We get just one life, and we must live it to the fullest.
