To be a kid again

Today at my job we had an education day where a group of kindergartners came in to see a performance by a Korean drumming and dance ensemble. The kids were ecstatic. They were moved by the music and they got up and danced as they felt it. You could see the excitement in their eyes.

They danced like no one was watching. That is something we lose when we get older. As time goes on most of us go from being free spirited and uninhibited to self conscious, and worried about the perception of others.

I think we should keep our adult wisdom, but live like children. Dance like nobody's watching, love like you've never been hurt and sing like nobody's listening. Enjoy life without the worry of someone else's perception, at least every once in a while.

When someone says "I felt like a kid again" they usually refer to an instance where they were able to feel free, able to let go of preoccupation with other's opinions and just LIVE. We should do that more often. Although it's hard to hold onto that youthful fire as we get older and gain more responsibility, adulthood doesn't have to be full of constraints or rules. Adults can have fun too
