It is Childrens Day today and many adults are reminding each other of the good old childhood days and how they wish they would come back. To me, this sentiment is amusing, as I would never wish those days back. The biggest, foremost reason for not going back into childhood – my only one wish as a child was “To Grow Up!!”.
I am an adult now – intelligent, beautiful, rich, and blessed (some may not agree with me on some or all of these, but it doesn’t matter. I still think I am all of these.) All my childhood, I prayed to become big, so that I could make my own decisions, have my own money, live my own life and not worry about school grades. It would be a nightmare for me to go back to those days to become a child again.
As for the attractive components of being a child – cute, innocent, fun, carefree, easily trusting, can go to sleep whenever and wake up whenever; I think I can chose to be all of the above, all the time or some times, whenever I wish. That is the power of being an adult. I would never trade it in a million years.
It is fun to be a child, but it is even more fun to be able to feel like a child when you are actually an adult. Here’s wishing all adults a very Happy Childrens day! May you find the child within you before you are too old!
