Sometimes I just watch my children as they sit there and ponder life themselves. Life as a child is very different to a adult and in some point in there lives, there is a transition. As a child the challenges you face are very different, but just as important as a’n adult. The friendships you make as a child are awesome and also work as the same principle as a adult, as a friend normally has the same interest’s as you and there fore enjoy hanging together, there is normally nothing better until you have a argument only to realise as a child you have forgotten about it by the end of a day and will be back playing together the next day. As adults we tend to over complicate argument’s and normally loose friends much faster. I know as time went on I learnt about keeping friends were a lot of the things I did as a child.
Normally if we look back there can be many things we can learn from our child hoods. The stress levels of most children are non existent, why would they have to worry about paying bills, or the next house payment, and normally there is always some form of breakfast, lunch and dinner waiting for them even though they are never hungry till they ask for the chocolate biscuits 5 minutes after dinner.
But here I am all grown up, making crucial choices all the time, weather being financial or where to live, where to work, trying to make ends meet, or just planning a vacation.
So sometimes we are all to grown up and sometimes we forget to look at things as a child, and sometimes I over complicate things for no apparent reason, a choice my son at 8 would of made in 5 seconds, I could take a week. So this brings me to my point for today.
Is my lesson learnt ?
After looking at a decision my 8 yr old made on something that was so simple and He told me the answer straight away, as I went off to ponder on it, to only come back a few days later with the same answer, made me really think.. hmmmmmmm
So yes my lesson was learnt that sometimes I need to look at situations as a child and that will more than likely make my decision making so much easier.
So my advice is to sometimes listen to the young 8 yr olds as sometimes they do know better.
Have a great and blessed day……
