My summer was super. I spent the summer with my friends and their girls as I do every year. It was a wonderful time for me that I look forward to every year. Boundless energy, curiosity, imagination, creativity, a sense of anticipation and wonder (anything can happen/anything is possible), these are all the traits of a child. They are reawakened within me when circled by a ring happy children beaming smiles. Unbridled joy and splashing in the sea ended in wild dashing for the shore. Their laughter was infectious and made me crave for more. Tender touches and fond embraces will be in my memories until next year, when I’ll see them all again – right here. - Childlike wonder and wisdom
The seeds of creativity live in your imagination. You have incredible creative powers, and no one can take that from you unless you let them. Your imagination is the gateway to the realization of your dreams. Instead of abandoning it, you should continue to develop this wonderful creative force as you get older. – From Imagination to Realization – Bridging the Gap
You are only as old as you feel. Now there is evidence to suggest that people who feel younger than their actual age experience many positive mental and physical health benefits, and those who feel older experience worse health. – Acting Your Age May Be Bad for Your Health
When we reach our 40s and 50s – there are a lot of things going on. There’s so much going on you can feel like you are over the hill before you have climbed the path. If you realize you’re acting your age or even older – do something about it.
There is a spontaneous and happy four-year-old within you. Get in touch with your child-like sense of curiosity and wonder again. Stop taking things for granted and start learning new things. Ask why and dig deep for answers. Unleash your imagination and explore new ways to do old things. Enjoy the simple things. Laugh and love. Choose to be – forever four.
