10 Things We Could Learn From Children
Have you ever learned something from a child? There are many things children can teach adults. There are a few things we tend to forget as we age which can be seen in children. Here is a list of some of them:
• Laugh freely
Children laugh with abandon and don’t think or care about how it will look. When they laugh, they laugh out loud. They are carefree and find happiness in small things, adults can go months without laughing, start laughing like a child.
• Stay courageous
Children do whatever they want to do. They sing loudly, dance around, and enjoy being creative. They don’t care about consequences and have no fear. They don’t know the taste of failure and just keep doing their best.
• Curious mind
Kids often imagine things in a weird way and tend to know the logistics behind things happening around them. They tell interesting stories about how babies are born, how trees grow, and many other developments. They have a great power to imagine things which yields great ideas. Sometimes they ask such weird questions we have a hard time coming up with an answer!
• Unconditional love
When children love they do it unconditionally without wanting anything in return, this is something we should learn. Just like trees bear fruit without expectation, kids shower love without consideration. Give unconditional love and see how your life changes.
• Live life on their own terms
Kids usually don’t have fixed schedules or obligations and they live life on their own terms, if they want to color or play with toys then that is what they do. Living life freely makes you more creative, efficient, and innovative.
• How to forgive
One moment they are upset, the next moment they are fine. You give them a chocolate and they are happy. They carry the attitude of forgive and forget. They are innocent and let go of anger and sadness. Learn to forgive and forget from the children around you, it feels good.
• Speak up and show your true emotions
Children don’t censor themselves before speaking, they show their true emotions. If they act happy they are happy, when they are angry they show that too. Speak up without trying to manipulate others to be at peace.
One of the best qualities of children is innocence, adopt it. Their soul is honest and their conscience is clear. They are too innocent to think about revenge or violence. They tend to trust everyone and have the mindset that life will be good to them.
• Dream big
For children the sky is the limit and they dream big. Adults tend to limit our abilities and dream according to them. We should dream big and expand our capacity and skills to achieve our dreams. If you can’t dream you can’t achieve.
• Do things you enjoy
Kids do what they love and don’t do much they don’t enjoy, you can learn from them and pursue your interests. When you do what you love you can work wonders, it will always be fun and interesting instead of a burden.
