What is it that every small child has in common? They’re happy. They’re balance. They’re stress free. Just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we have to be bogged down, overwhelmed and stressed out. If we adopt a few mindset shifts, we can easily be as happy & carefree as the children in our lives.
So what are children doing so right that most of us are doing so wrong?
They laugh- a lot!
They say laughter is the best medicine. So why aren’t we doing it more?Did you know? Kids laugh between 300-500 times per day. Adults laugh less than 20! Click To Tweet
The more laughter we produce, the happier we feel. Which leads to us feeling more positive, which leads to us attracting even more positivity and abundance into our lives. That can come in the form of money, health or happy relationships.
If you aren’t laughing throughout your day, do something about it! Call a friend that always makes you laugh. Listen to comedy radio during your commute. Ask you kids to tell you a funny story about their day. Whatever tickles you, make sure you do it!
They have no fear.
They will try just about anything and most often don’t even think about it first. They aren’t afraid to step outside of their comfort zones. It’s no wonder that so much growth happens in our early years!
If want to move forward in life, we must take that first step!
It’s not always easy, but it’s necessary. Take a cue from the kids- don’t analyze it. Just do it!
They are creative & curious.
They aren’t afraid to explore their creativity, break the rules or color outside the lines. They aren’t aware of “norms” and “protocols”. They do what they want, when they want, how they want.
We spend way too much time and energy worrying about what others will think and trying to live up to everyone else’s expectations. Instead, take the time to create space in your life to really explore you’re creativity and chase your curiosity until you find that thing that lights you up. That thing that you could get lost in for hours. And when you do, do it often!
Spending time doing what we are really passionate and excited about connects us with a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment, which in turn raises our vibrational frequency and attracts more abundance into our lives.
They see wonder in everything.
The simple things like blowing bubbles and chasing butterflies can become a magical and wondrous experience for a child. We lose that wonder and magic as we grow up. We become “realistic” and take the beauty and magic of the world for granted.
Try going through your day tomorrow looking at the world as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Show down and take a moment here and there to really appreciate what you see.
Feeling gratitude for the many blessings in your life is the fastest way to attracting abundance. Seeing the world through the lens of a child will help you rediscover the blessings that you might be taking for granted.
They love unconditionally.
They ask for nothing. They will not try to change you or give you an ultimatum. They love and accept you exactly the way you are. They appreciate your appreciate and admire your unique qualities- both good and bad. Imagine how amazingly wonderful the world would be if we all did that!
They forgive- easily.
Have you ever scolded a child only to have them turn around and say, “I love you” minutes later.
They’re feelings get hurt, sure. And as they get a little older, their pride may get bruised. But it never lasts. That’s the power of a short attention span! Even when their little hearts get broken into pieces, it takes little more than a hug to earn their forgiveness. The slate is then wiped clean and everything is happy and perfect once again.
We get hurt too! But do we always forgive completely? Or do we only half-forgive while always waiting for that person to hurt us again? What if we forgave people easily and completely? It means opening ourselves up to vulnerability but the payoff is that it wipes our slate clean allowing us to clear out the negativity rather than continue to keep carrying it around.
They only want to be loved.
They do not ask for the world. They don’t care about money or status or prestige. They only want to be loved. And that is always enough. Shouldn’t that be enough for all of us?
