Because Sometimes You Just Need To Be A Kid.


          Hello readers! I know I haven't been posting as much as before but I'm truly trying my best. My Monday Moments series perfectly gives me motivation to start the week. But as days go by, I'm either working on a presentation until 2 AM or studying for a test. And sometimes, both. My post graduation course is really hectic. But because of a few amazing people, it gets better to go through with it.
          I thought PG course would entail a level of seriousness, maturity and understanding among people. But, I was so wrong. I think that the maturity factor never leaves as long as you're a student. I'm surrounded by all these people who are funny and incredible. They know how to laugh it off. They know how to relax me when I'm freaked out about submissions. They know how to joke around. They just know. Today was another such day which was fun. We had our Marketing presentations followed by a few lectures.
          We do the most silly things. It's almost like school. A month back, I'd have dismissed this as childish behaviour. But now, I just go along with it because, why not? Sometimes all you need is to be a kid. A kid who has no worries. A kid who knows how to laugh from heart. A kid who is innocent and knows nothing about the real world.

          We read some amazing quotes about life. We observe some miraculous changes in our outlook. We strive to set right priorities. We grow without thinking. We become an adult just like that. And as we are worriedly writing a cheque for the home loan installment, we wonder.
When did we grow up?
When did we age so much?
Where did all those years go?

          At 21, as I think of these questions, I get lost contemplating life. We all pretend to know it but do we really know it? All I want is to keep the kid in me alive. Even when there are deadlines to meet and targets to achieve, that kid shouldn't be lost. If that innocence, cuteness, naivety and real happiness is lost, then I'll get lost too. So, when my friend draws a line on my book to ruin it. I draw a line on her book without thinking. Because of that kid's innocence, I get manipulated. But only the people who know me can understand how naive I really am. Sometimes it just doesn't matter what others think. It only matters what you think and how you are going to handle your life. If you're stressed, just get that kiddish charm back and stop thinking, laugh at the silly things and you'll find yourself.

  2. Yessss...one must never lose that sparkle of childhood magic, right?! This is exactly why I let myself have at it with those adult (pfft, CHILD) colouring-in books because...BEING A KID IS FUN.

  6. Keep the kid in you alive! At 27 I guess I feel more "adult" but I also don't feel much different, deep down :)

  9. And yet, if you try to keep your inner child alive, you are often marked as gullible, naive or a dreamer :/

  10. I completely agree. Kids don't stress as much as adults do, and it's great to take a minute to just be a kid and let things go!
