Kids. They are young and innocent. Everything is fresh, new, and beautiful to them. The world has not tarnished their free spirit. They are curious, creative, and fearless. Because of their young perspectives, kids can teach everybody how to live and love. They remind us of the basic life lessons we may have forgotten, and how to treat others, as well as ourselves.
Kids teach us how to love unconditionally. They are taught to see differences in people, so with a clean slate, they do not discriminate. They do not see or point out flaws in people. Kids are willing to go out of their way to do things for others. In a world full of hatred and competition to be the best at everything, adults tend to see flaws in people and judge them based on these flaws. Adults can learn how to love from kids.
Kids teach us to have faith. They feel like they can accomplish all of their hopes and dreams because no one has told them otherwise yet. This spirit is contagious. The world tells adults that you have to look and act a certain way in order to be successful, but kids have not received that message. Kids are open to learning about various belief systems and they accept them without doubt. The world teaches us that the people to be glorified, and unlike adults, kids are more accepting of religious beliefs, even those different from their own.
Kids teach us to have fun every so often. As we grow up, we get bogged down with responsibilities. From rent to loan payments, we are focused on making money and taking care of our needs. While kids have responsibilities such as school and chores, their spirits remain easy-going and they take time to do fun things. There are few things more precious than a child’s laughter. Kids teach us that it is okay to laugh and enjoy life in the midst of chaos and hard times; in fact, embracing your inner child in times of difficulty almost certainly brings a new wave up positivity into your life, the fresh outlook you needed.
Kids teach us to enjoy the little things in life. They have not had too many experiences, so the littlest things can amuse them. They enjoy anything from watching a butterfly to seeing the flowers of spring. They truly embody the phrase, “Take time to stop and smell the roses.” The world is full of the hustle and bustle of work, competition, and getting ahead, so adults tend to get caught up in the busyness of life. Kids teach adults to take a new perspective and to slow down every so often to appreciate the smaller things in life. In a world of hatred and war, kids teach us to love, accept, and believe without limits!
