Cherishing my childhood

Childhood for me was simply perfect.

When I recall all the  countless memories, all I can think of is laughter, joy and only happiness.

The age of about 1-7 had so immensly special moments, that whenever I think of them, I just want to go back. 

I never had to worry about anything, all I had to do was scream and I got what I wanted!

I never really had any responsibilities, except for sleeping, eating, laughing and playing, and then repeating that…

I was always around my friends and didn’t really have to worry about losing them… everything was easy.

As I am growing older from child to a teenager, there are obvious changes. Lots of responsibilities, listening to people responsibly, bearing with inherently unbearable situations just to be polite. As for friends, you really have to be careful about their feelings, relationships get more serious, and it’s definitely not as easy as it used to be. Of course then studies also come in place, and basically you have to start taking things a little more seriously to be somewhere in life.

However, None of these changes above are wrong, in fact they are all part of the elixir of growing up. But then, We can get nostalgic. Pragmatically, I do want to grow up and live as an individual, but, on the other hand, in a very childish way, I keep on reminiscing those days. And maybe that’s the way out of the dilemma: ever so often, giving vent to the child inside you. Go out in the rain, play in the park, have a weekend off with your family to a faraway place. Go ahead and live your life, and never let the child inside you leave, so instead of dwelling upon those moments and feeling sad, bring them with you in every possible way… and always keep smiling! 

Even to mention, I am so grateful to have so loving parents who love me exactly the same as they did a few years ago, so that didn’t change at all! 

Dylan Lauren once said “Candy is childhood, the best and bright moments you wish could have lasted forever.”  He could very much be talking about me! 

And to end off with, here’s a typical minion quote:

  2. So sweet and true! I’m choosing to be grown when the moments need me to be. But when I’m with my children, I like to just let lose and remember how fun it was to be silly and free. Time does go by far too quickly not to stop and enjoy the little things in life – like candy. 😊🙏🏽

  9. A joy of a grandfather is unmeasured when he sees and watches the progress of his grandad.

    There rise from a small child to teens is full of joy amidst the burden of daily life.I still keep various charming moments of their growth in my heart and the same give me strength to me to fight my old age.
    The Bachpan of each one is a treasure in his closests.It is a life without responsi unity or consequences just to live joyfully.That is why a poetess pray to the God his Bhachpan.Another remembers his childhood in his song,what it was to be a part of rains with his paper boat going with down with rain water.
    All said and done Adulthood is not childhood nor so easy a play.Each has its good and bad phases the difference is that children play is so easy that only positive of life is there no mind process to interfere in their joy,Laugh and even smile.

  10. Great post!! I totally agree with you.
    Being an adult doesn’t mean that we should abandon that child inside us. We should find every possible way to bring out that child in us and let it play in the happiness of those moments.That’s the way we can enjoy the best of both worlds.

    1. I have just been thinking and recalling my memories from the past and how much it makes me smile. However, we can’t live in the past, so it’s important to simply smile and while you can, never loose the child within you 🙂 …it’s a thought that I often thought, So while writing this I kind of answered my question.
