Children. April 28, 2010.
"Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.” - Saint-Exupéry, “The Little Prince”

When you are feeling down, are you ever mesmerized by children and how happy and carefree they seem? Even children in miserable conditions manage to laugh and play. They seem to have a way to compartmentalize things – they may have worries, but they are able to cast their worries aside and enjoy life anyway.
At some point, many of us lose that ability. We become consumed in our concerns and can think of nothing else. But sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to give it a rest. Just for today, can I be more like a child?
