Happiness is...Acting Like a Child

As an adult when someone tells us we are acting like a child they don't mean it in a very good way.  Well, I think we need to turn it around and see it in a whole new way.  We can learn a lot from kids.  I think we should try acting like them more often! 

Think about it.  Kids are so free.  If they want to sing really loud in the middle of a store they do.  If they want to twirl around in circles for no reason they can.  They can wear the craziest outfit and no one thinks they're crazy.  They live with no regrets.

Kids don't have a lifetime of people putting them down or telling them what they shouldn't be.  They don't have the self-consciousness that we develop as grown ups.  Everything is still new and magical to them.  As adults we just get through the day sometimes.  We lose sight of all the magic around us.

I saw this video for the first time yesterday and fell in love.  You may have already seen it.  I'm not sure how long it has been around.  Yes, it is a cell phone commercial.  Just ignore that part and enjoy the fun of it and what it's saying.  It made me think about how much more fun it is to act like a child.  So, Why not be like that more often?  :-) 

I hope you have a wonderful day!  My goal for today is to enjoy myself and act like a child as much as possible.  :-)
