Watching clouds go by
Do you remember when you were a kid and you laid in the grass and watched the clouds go by? I have talked occasionally about wonderment, about finding the beauty in everything that comes into your life. Part of this is opening yourself up to your inner child.
When I was a child I could spend hours just watching the clouds and imagining what shape they pretended to be. The hours seemed like minutes because I was totally entrenched by the beauty and the fun of the clouds. I still do this on occasion, although I rarely lie down in the grass, I just sit and look upward to enjoy the clouds. Are you willing to be a child again?
We are all so busy in our busy world that we refuse to take time for ourselves and time to play. Why do we lose the joy of a child? The answer is because we refuse to cultivate it as we grow. Our society says that is childish and we should be more responsible. I say baloney!! I say to truly know joy we need to feed our inner child, we need to be willing to just watch the clouds go by.
We refuse to open our minds to the joy we knew as a child because we are afraid to let go of the noise of the people around us. We need to find comfort in our own self and not be so concerned about what everyone else has to say about us or what we are doing.
Rediscover your inner child, feed its imagination and joy. By allowing this simple act your heart will be lightened and joy will return to your life. It is ok to be silly, it is ok be childish. Do not allow anyone, including yourself, to take that joy away. When you are able to just let go and watch the clouds go by you feed your soul and you begin the process of bringing joy back into your life.
Till next time,
