Don't Lose The Kid In You

Remember when you were a kid and you had so many fun moments? You didn’t have a care in the world, things were easy for the most part (for those who had pretty good childhoods). Where you got to hangout with your friends, be goofy, do silly things, get in trouble and hope your parents don’t find out? Yeahhh those were the days.


Somehow when we become adults, we lose the kid in us. The cartoons we loved to watch, the video games we used to play, the toys we used to have and play with all of the time. Somehow we’ve lost the kid in us and we’ve stopped being silly, goofy, fun. Everything is so serious and somehow the world has drained the energy out of us.


We’re all in survival mode, the cost of living is ridiculously high, we’re spending astronomical amounts of money on food, car payments, gas and a myriad of other things. We have no time to enjoy ourselves, let loose and be who we truly are.


What has happened to us? Life. How do we get it back? By not letting ourselves lose the kid in us. By going back to our childhoods and doing the things we used to sometimes. Bike riding, rollerblading, swimming, being in the outdoors, just the simpler things that brought us joy daily. 


It’s what we need to get back to, we spend more time worrying about what’s next instead of being in the moment. We don’t know how long we have, let’s do our best to find time to be a kid for just a little while. 


Call your friends, have a game night with food and snacks, spend a few hours together. If you have kids, have a play date with your kids while you play board games with your friends. Go on a fun adventure of paintball or bowling, something to break the monotony of your routine life. 


It’s time to break out of the rinse, wash, repeat, hamster wheel cycle of life. That’s not what life is supposed to be. 

I hope this blog is motivational enough to get you thinking about your childhood and what made it fun and special.


Thanks for reading my blog, have a good week, be good everyone, and go accomplish your goals!
