Wednesday Wiseness: Children run after the simplest of things with the seriousness of the world
Ever notice how children run after the simplest of things with the seriousness of the world? Maybe we can learn a thing or two from them about sincerity and devotion. Nothing is insignificant or unworthy of attention in their eyes. They give it their all despite a limited attention span.
Scribbling with crayons like a little Picasso
Watching cartoons as if witnessing the Apocalypse
Planting a flower in the backyard like a caring parent
Jumping on the bed like a trained astronaut in space
Asking questions like an avid historian
Who says children need to grow up? They are brilliant and perfect just the way they are.
It’s us ‘adults’ who need to ‘grow-up’ a little less.
So what have you noticed in your children (or grandchildren) that takes your breath away?
I am participating in the National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) – November 2014. This is an awesome venture of Blogher.com. In their own words:
“Every November, thousands of bloggers commit to posting daily. But it’s about much more than getting that post up—it’s about community and connection. It’s also about honing your craft, challenging yourself, and taking your blog to the next level.”
I will write every day of November. This is my fifth post.
