No matter how many birthdays we celebrate (read get our ass kicked),
No matter how many gray hairs we count on our head every day,
Or how many we lose every day,
No matter how cynical we become as the world around us gets more real,
No matter how hard life seems once we start slogging it out at work,
No matter how many times we feel low in life,
No matter how much we feel lacking in enthusiasm
(In short, no matter how old we get)
It is the innocence in us that makes us enjoy the little pleasures in life,
It is the childishness in us which makes us go wild,
It is simplistic, uncomplicated behaviour that makes us laugh out in joy,
It is the kid in us which exults as we meet old friends.
Sometimes, as we grow older, the little joys in life cease to matter. We start focusing on our career, relationships, and the world around us, rather than on the simple things that make life beautiful. But the beauty in life lies in laughing and jumping around for no reason at all, like we once did as children.
An author once asked a child why he was jumping. He replied "Because I am happy". When asked why he was happy, the child replied, "Because I am jumping".
Saluting the child in all of us, so that no matter how much we age, our spirit remains as pure, innocent, uncomplicated, and childish as it was when we knew little.
Happy Children's Day :) !
