Children’s Perspective

I want to go back to having a child’s perspective on everything.

Yes, children cry. But it’s about something that has just happened, it’s a reaction to something, rather than constantly worrying about what’s coming in the future. I want to go back to a time where I used to imagine myself travelling the world, exploring unknown forests, climbing mountains and trees, making weapons out of sticks to survive in the dangerous woods – and all of that was met with dreamy eyes and excitement.

Nowadays, I’m afraid of heights, would not be able to face snakes or spiders, and am on a permanent state of anxiety about the future and what could be coming.

How do you change your perspective back to the innocent one of a child? Because I feel like as you live and learn, you find out more about the dangers of life and you naturally try to avoid them, sometimes worrying for no reason.

  1. I haven’t had a TV in 15 years and that helps! Media and News is jam packed full of fear inducing stuff which makes you feel anxious. And not all based on fact either. It can be quite sensationalized too.

    I also get into nature as much as I can and into the sea as cities stress me out completely. You need to look back at where your fears coming from and also realise you actually can do those things. The life you want is on the other side of fear.

    Realise how short life is and as the famous book says feel the fear and do it anyway! I have been in a rut for a while but this weekend I decided I’m gonna go do some of the things I want to do. Like doing a new course and moving location.

    Too many adults take life too seriously. Yes it gets serious and is stressful but people need to have fun sometimes. So I do wild swimming, boogie boarding, hula hooping and just bought a new pair of roller boots. Cause why not.

    Everyones trying to conform but you have to do what makes you happy. The unhappiness of not doing the things you want can be more painful than the safety of a comfort zone. At any time our health can go or we can go. Life happens now.

    So I really hope you climb that mountain! Or do one small thing that excites you. 🙂

  2. You actually hit the nail on the head with that last sentence. Maybe the best thing to do the first thing in the morning is to say “Clean Slate” and pretend you have insomnia? LOL Unfortunately, we have memories and triggered responses come from those memories, so I’m not sure how well it would work.

  3. I stay away from social media, it really does a number on you and it’s hard to notice until you actually take a break from it then you realise just how much it disconnects you from you, if that makes sense. The mental clarity and alertness is worth it!
