Through the eyes of a child

Look at life through the eyes of a child, who is amazed and awed by the wonders of the world.

My favorite model, my granddaughter, who is almost 3.

Can you imagine approaching your day as if you did not dread it, anticipating it to be boring, routine, possibly stressful or dreadful? Can you find something in your life today to look at closely, to appreciate, to find interesting, delightful, or wonderful?

St. Paul writes, “When I was  child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man [woman], I put childish ways behind me.” (1 Corinthians 13:11)

I think that life might be better if we did not put away all of our childish ways. I think that we would enjoy life more if we approached it with the wonderment and delight of a child. Perhaps our enjoyment of life might spill over to those around us and they just might just have a good day.

  1. She remains just absolutely gorgeous! And, I really agree with your post. I’m a huge fan of Albert Einstein, and I love his quote about approaching life as either 1) everything is a miracle or 2) nothing is a miracle. He kept that childlike wonder and curiosity about him until the day he died, and I think that’s what made him such an intelligent creature.

  2. “I think that life might be better if we did not put away all of our childish ways”

    I agree completely… Especially when it comes to spending time time with our partners. Sadly it does not work out too well when one feels this way and the other one does not.

    • Yes Marcus, you are so right. But we learn and grow and in our growing maybe we become strong enough to be childlike. My granddaughter helps me to play and laugh.
