Five Life Lessons you must Learn from a Child

Category : All, khichdi · by Feb 21st, 2015

As truly said by Giacomo Leopardi, Zibaldone Scelto: “Children find everything in nothing; men find nothing in everything”

When we grow up we changed, we become civilized but what we lost actually? What as a child we have which seems to be forgotten? What we need to learn from our younger selves or from a child playing in the park across the street?

Sometimes it feels that we spend our entire lives trying to return to who we were as children Here we bring some life qualities which we can learn from a child & bring joy to our adulthood.

A Child can teach us many things

A Child can teach us many things

Every morning is a New Beginning

“Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.” 

― Meister Eckhart

Burden of yesterday, worry about future & to plan our present is all what occupied our whole morning. We use to be more worry about our past & future. We hold our past with both of our hands & want to jump into future. This is all we feel each morning?

But when we were young, every day feels like an eternity and a new day means new opportunities to make new friends, explore new adventures, learn new things. Children don’t carry baggage from one day to the next. They start fresh, always.

Isn’t it amazing to feel each day as new opportunity to life, a new beginning, is it very hard?

Laugh like a king

“You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing.” 

― Michael Pritchard

Today why we need Laughter Yoga? Why we need to go to park & take laughing exercises? Our daily routines, day to day worries, makes us to forget how to laugh?

Children have the beautiful ability to find joy all around them. Just watch the humor a child can find in a shopping mall or at the park. They see silliness everywhere.

So learn from them & try to bring laughter in your’s & others life

Be ready to take risks, play out all your worries

“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”

– Mark Zuckerberg

Children are not afraid to play a sport they have never tried before. They will jump on a trampoline, dive into a pool or ski down a mountain even if it is foreign to them. As adults, we fear the unknown. We stay safely ensconced in our comfort zone and rarely venture out. Adventure exhilarates us and awakens the spirit.

Be ready to take risks because all you got is the moment you are living to make your life remarkable

Live life at the very moment not in future

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
 William W. Purkey

Sing out loud. Dance when you feel like it. A child’s life feels limitless because they are not confined by fears of failure or humiliation. They march forward with hope and determination because they don’t know any better. They haven’t been beaten down, they haven’t experienced failure. They embrace life and all it has to offer with open arms.

We keeping waiting for that amazing thing to happen in the future that will be the key to our happiness. But this is it. Right now. Life continues to be a series of right nows. So learn to love right now, and you’ll have an amazing life.

Be creative, artist of your own game

“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”

– Franklin D. Roosevelt

Creative pursuits are fun and good for you.

How often do you see children losing themselves in a creative project for hours at a time? Drawing, playing with clay, building a sandcastle with meticulous attention to detail. For some reason, as we get older, we stop seeing creative activities as worthwhile.

Be proactive in your life, designing exactly what you want rather than reacting to what life throws at you. Creation empowers you and expands your opportunities.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of

Wow! This can be one particular of the most useful blogs We ave ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Wonderful. I am also a specialist in this topic therefore I can understand your effort.

Games in PCs used to require a separate joystick aside from the keyboard;
however, more modern video games in personal computers can be played
simply with the standard mouse and keyboard. If you are getting bored with
your exercise routine or don’t have one yet, invest in a video game and get into shape.
But by looking for jobs in the right places, you have an edge
on the competition because you’re not wasting time looking for jobs where they don’t exist.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
