Sunday Quotes: The Child Within

Good Sunday Morning to you all!

Anyone else out there feel a little lost?  I definitely feel like I am lacking some focus and direction in my life.  The last time I felt this lost was over 10 years ago when my heart got broken for the very first time.  After what felt like years (but in all actuality was only weeks) of feeling depressed and very alone, I stumbled into a book store which had some self-help (*shudder*) books about depression and rediscovering your child within.  In one of many moments of weakness during that period of time, I bought it.  And do you want to know something?  Surprisingly, the book actually helped.  After reading it, I realized that as children we just keep it simple.  We play, we explore, we try everything and we most definitely live in the moment!  There is nothing more confident and honest than the mind of a child.

Then life happens.

Doubt happens.

Rejection happens.

Failure happens.

Heartbreak happens.

The child within us gets smaller and smaller and that child’s voice turns into merely a whisper.

Needless to say the book I bought a decade ago actually helped me rediscover what I loved doing as a kid and to live in the moment more.  May need to dig that book back up again, dust it off and rediscover the child within.

Thanks all for reading!
