It is unanimously agreed that childhood is the best phase of our lives. As kids, we wanted to grow up fast but now as adults, we want to go back to being children. Childhood is the time when we are innocent, we get to explore everything with an open mind.
I remember when I was a child, I would be so excited to try on my mom’s saree, I would draw a mustache like my Dad, wear his oversized chappals and pretend to be them. I thought adults had all the freedom they wanted, to drive a car, travel alone, buy whatever they wanted, but back then we didn’t realize how hard they had to work to earn an independent livelihood. Once we realize that, we want to be kids again. HAHA. I do reminisce about these things from time-to-time and that is what makes me smile now and makes my adulthood beautiful.
As adults, our life gets complicated because we’re expected to fulfill our role in the family and in society. No matter what we do, responsibilities are always on the back of our mind and all our decisions are in line with them. “I need to get back home on time” I need to sleep early or I won’t make it to work on time”, Things like these always cross our mind. As kids, we could even skip an exam and still not worry about it 😂 Everything seems exciting when we’re children because we’re not exposed to the tribulations of adulthood. We have responsibilities in place and things we need to take care of. While childhood is inherently beautiful, it is we who need to make adulthood beautiful. Kids, don’t be in a rush to grow up. Enjoy your childhood as long as it lasts 😂
