What I Learned From My Kids

Lessons Learned from My Kids
Kids have a magical quality about them. They see the world just as it is. They act exactly as they feel and they let go of issues faster than you can say “let it go”. I’m in constant awe of my kids and their ability to live in the present and enjoy every moment. Have you ever sat in the playground and just watched the kids play? 
Here’s a little bit of what I’ve seen (and learned about how life should be lived):
First, my oldest son Aeden, who just turned 8, attempts the monkey bars with absolute determination to get it right. When all doesn’t go well, he moves on to the next challenge, all the while satisfied with his accomplishment thus far. Then he befriends a new kid on the playground and they quickly set up a game of “Tag, your it!”. Soon there is a community of kids joining the game all taking turns of being in charge of this masterful game.
Next he and a couple of his new friends see a patch of dirt that they want to explore to see if they can in fact dig their way to China (I too was convinced this was possible!). Before long, these fast new friends are setting up a conveyer belt of sorts, with each kid proudly attending to his/her job. And together, they manage to set up a small city with roads, buildings, and a river running through it.
By the end of all this they exchange numbers (rather my number that they proudly have memorized) to set up a play date. New friends, a sense of accomplishment, creativity, dreaming big, community, and confidence that you have an important place in this world. These are the lessons I learned, just by watching them on the playground!
I’m not sure when our Ego takes over and our “baggage” prevents us from living as simply and purely as my young kids, but what I do know is that we too as adults should strive to live life as a kid. Here’s some important lessons that I have learned:
  • Let things go when they come at us.
  • Take action, even if we might fail, we will be happy that at least we tried.
  • Connecting with others is so important and being part of a community makes things happen.
  • Its important to play. Have fun.
  • Laugh for no reason.
  • Play tag or whatever game that brings out the kid in you.
 
 
Whatever your child self desires, do it! In fact the other day I was in a bit of a funk and all I could think about doing was getting a hula-hoop. So that day, I did just that- I hula-hooped. What fun that is!!
Today, make a list of all of the child-like activities that you want to do. I guarantee you will start to laugh more and not take life so seriously. If you have kids, please watch and learn. They have so much to teach us. I feel so blessed by my little angels. They have taught me to live life fully!
