6 Tips for Remaining Childlike Forever

6 Tips for Remaining Childlike Forever

4282486008_2bc67ffe8d_o

    There is an insurmountable beauty in children. They are innocent, untamed, and just the way they are. They have no facade, no pretense, or no shame. They have no apologies, regrets, or evil. They simply do what their hearts say or tell them to do. And as innocent as they are, they do just exactly that.

    All children have is this witty, jovial, and free nature that many of us lack. What if we adults were more like this? Just experiencing life simply on its terms, just letting it be.I feel more adults should act child-like as it keeps their innocent intact, providing them with true happiness, as well as simplicity. It has so many benefits that can provide you with a life long of happiness, tranquility, and composure. So how can you remain childlike forever? Just follow this advice:

    1. Always Act Like a Child

    Celebrate like a kid would. When you are happy, your whole face shows it. Smile whenever you get the chance or opportunity. Life is too short for worries, troubles, and fights. Be the person you were meant to be. Always enjoy the little moments in life. Whenever you will, you will feel like a child at any given opportunity. Children wake up each morning looking forward to the day and see opportunity in everything. For example, when you get off from work because of inclement weather celebrate like there is no tomorrow. Days like this don’t always come so seize the opportunity.

    2. Don’t Let People Tell You “Be More Mature!”

    If others tell you “grow up” or mature, don’t heed acting like your child-like self. You are you not them. Don’t try to be like them either. Be only yourself. Nobody should tell you to start acting more mature because you are who you are for a reason. You are not someone else and can act the way you want, whenever you want. As always, do what your heart tells you. The heart forever remains child-like whether we choose to grow up or not.

    3. Hold On To Innocence

    Always hold on to your innocence, no matter how selfish people may act around you. Innocence can have no price tag placed on it. It is something that is cherished and should be cherished more often. It keeps our bodies, hearts, and minds pure from all of the negativity the world throws at us. It gives us reason to be ourselves, without nagging, criticism, or skepticism.It is something that is so beautiful and pure that cannot be described in mere words. It truly is something that is essential in becoming child-like as all kids are innocent and pure. Cynicism is only something we acquire through life experience.

    4. Laugh often

    Laugh at every opportunity you can get. Life is too short for chances. So, make the most of them and use laughter as the best medicine to act like a child for the rest of your life. Seize every chance you get to laugh till your stomach hurts forever and ever. You will be thankful for laughter is the best medicine. (It also lengthens your life)!

    5. Simplicity is key

    Don’t get caught up in lies, false statements, and clever tricks. Be the person, simple, innocent, child you truly are. Don’t try outwitting people or beating them at various things. Just act in simplicity and you will live a life of laughter. Eventually, these people will get their due but it won’t be because you wasted your time worrying about them.

    6. Stop over-thinking

    When we over-think we needlessly stress out our minds and bodies. Don’t drain your mind of the energy when you will need later on for more important things. Over-thinking only leads to negativity and doubts. It does no one good. Just trust your instincts and never over-think. It just hurts you and the people around you. Kids never over-think. At times, they don’t even think when they should be thinking.

    6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

    6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

    Is it time to make some changes in your life? It just might be. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest.

    Here are some signs it’s time to change your life.

    1. Every week, you cannot wait for Friday.

      Fridays are fun, but one thing I’ve discovered in my quest to find and do work I absolutely love is that almost every day can be really fun. If you’re saving all your living for the weekends, it’s time to truly think about your lifestyle and consider making some changes. Don’t get me wrong; it’s great to have plans you look forward to on the weekends, but what if you could have that excited Friday feeling most, if not all, days of the week? It takes a lot of self-discovery and work, but it’s truly possible to live a life you love—even on Mondays.

      2. You live for your vacations.

      Vacations are great, but what’s even better is building a life you don’t need to take a vacation from. As Seth Godin said, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” Vacations are fun and exciting, but even better is building a life where you have the potential to do what lights you up many weeks of the year, not just your two allotted vacation weeks.

      3. When you stop and think about it, you’re really not focusing your life on your priorities.

      Write down your 3 top priorities. Then write down the 3 things you focus most of your life on. Are you spending your time living your top priorities? Consistently spending time doing what matters most to you is one of the keys to feeling fulfilled in your life. If you’re not focusing your life on what’s important to you, it’s time to make some changes.

      4. You have no idea what lights you up, and you don’t have the space in your life to discover it.

      If you haven’t found your passion in your current life, you’re not going to find it if you continue to do your same routine, over and over, year after year. In order to discover what lights you up, start by creating the space in your life to seek it. Give yourself time to figure out who you are, what your strengths are, and what picques your interest. Experiment with learning new things, spending time with inspiring people, and doing more of what excites you and less of the things that suck your energy.

      5. You’re frequently jealous.

      If you find yourself frequently feeling jealous of someone, there are 3 changes to consider making:

      1. Make a point to focus on your path instead of his or her journey. Sometimes this involves taking a break from social media.
      2. Get inspired from the person you’re jealous of, and work toward a similar goal in your life.
      3. Decide what the other person has is not something you are willing to put in the effort to achieve, so you’ll cheer him or her on but choose to not be jealous.

      When you are feeling jealous, consider why you want what the other person has, and what your motives are. Living a life on your terms, focused on your priorities, passions, and strengths, will provide you with much more fulfillment than trying to be somebody else.

      6. You can’t remember the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone.

      According to Neale Donald Walsch, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Your life can become even more amazing if you stretch beyond your comfort zone. If you’re not sure where to start, try the tips in this article about small ways to step out of your comfort zone.

      Life is too short to spend your years not living to your full potential. If you decide you’re ready to change your life, I encourage you to start taking small action steps toward the life you want to live. Keep moving forward.
