Seeing Through The Eyes Of A Child

There is a voice that doesn't use words. Listen ~ Rumi

Can you remember the feeling you had as a child? An imagination that was endless with new experiences every day. You woke up already knowing what you wanted to wear, even though your parents may not approve it. In your eyes, who says colors or patterns had to match. You expressed your emotions about how you felt about people with pure honesty. You would ask questions because you loved learning new things. There are several reasons why looking through a child's eyes changes the way you, as an adult, look at life differently.

Ask yourself, why not enjoy the simple things around you as a child does.

1. Think Positive

Children are very eager to try new things with excitement. A child automatically doesn't think negatively upon trying something new. Usually, when you approach a child with positive words, they are eager. How easy would it be to explore new adventures with excitement as a child does? Imagine walking out the front door, genuinely looking at everything for what it is through listening, touch, shape, color, scent, and appreciating what you can see. 2. Stop and Smell the Roses

When is the last time you stopped to appreciate the beauty of life? Children appreciate more in life, while adults often take things for granted. When a child discovers something fascinating, they will get so excited. Have you ever watched a toddler flush the toilet over and over or open and close a door trying to learn how it works? A child finds joy in the simplest things. Next time you walk by a flower stop and delight your senses.

3. Feeling Free To Be

Children love to run free, feeling the fresh air and the joys of life. From the purest of there hearts, they ask unfiltered questions looking for answers. Children do things without worrying about what other people are going to think. A child is very excited when they finally get a chance to dress themselves no matter if there outfit matches or not. As time moves along, it is when an adult figure talks down to them for being genuinely authentic in there style or ways that a child starts to doubt themselves. The next time you ask a question, don't worry about being right or wrong; be pure from the heart. When you step into your closet, dress with what feels proper to your being.

Seeing through the eyes of a child is the purest joy of life. Never stop allowing life to flow within you and around you. Remember, the worries that you continuously think today will not change your tomorrow. Enjoy the moments in the now never-ending the joyous wonders of life.
