A child in you?
CNY holiday will soon be over, sooner than anticipated. Why does it always happen; when we are enjoying ourselves, time passes so quickly and when we are suffering, time drags on?
The same happens whenever we travel; the journey to the place feels longer than the journey back home! Is it for real or our mind is playing tricks on us? If we measure it in distance, it is the same but the feeling is not, right?
I remembered when I was a child, I wanted to be an adult soon but now that I am an adult, I wish I could lived my childhood days longer. My reluctance to release the child in me explains the mischievous side of me. Though I may look fierce or unfriendly, you will love me when you get to know me. Trust me! Hahaha!
The last time we visited the optician, recommended by our buddy, we were told later that the guy complained that I was very cool and do not smile at him. Hah! Why do I need to smile at him or make small talk with him when he was busy with dear cousin who was his customer? I was kind enough to accompany dear cousin there the first two times. Shame on you, dear cousin, go to optician also need me to accompany! Haizz…
Dear cousin always says that I always fool those people who just knew me. I can sarcastically joke about an issue or situation, without a twinkle in my eyes, and they will be blur-blur over my comment! Hahaha! I love to watch their expressions! Only some smarter people will see through my personality the first time. But it rarely happens!
However, I must say kids are more sensitive. They can sense my true colours almost immediately. That is the reason why kids are easily attracted to me! They can feel I am one of them without me attempting to prove to them. Why lah? Why they are not scared of me one???
You know? I believe every one of us has a child in us. It is up to the individual to allow that hidden personality to expose itself to the people around them. Age is never a factor. Whether you are 8 or 80, there is still a child’s innocence in all of us.
During our last GFrenz get together at FL1, I saw a child in every fellow blogger! The moment we chose to allow ourselves to expose our true character to each other, the child in us came alive! That explained why we, from the age of 36 to 73, were able to have fun and a wonderful time together!
I believe a child is innocent and not pretentious. When a child is happy, a child will laugh. If a child is angry, a child will throw tantrums. When a child is sad, a child will cry. If we allow the child in us to overcome an adult judgement (which is more critical with caution and doubts) we may be happier.
Personally, I wish I could be in a happier state of mind, always. I thank you, all my friends, buddies and everyone I know, who accept the child in me. If you have seen the child in me, you are one of those people I am thanking now. You have allowed me to be myself and tolerated my childish nonsensical behaviour unconditionally. Thank you. Thank you.
Is there a child in you too?
