From a child’s perspective
Sunday, April 29, 2012
Did you experience a sense of wonder come over you today? Tired of allowing mundane matters foul your joy and you're ready to embrace the kind of innocence and pleasure you experienced during your childhood. A romantic or childlike frame of mind could compel you to seek beauty in the world around you and in the miracles of the natural world. As you look around, consider how one who has never seen such sights would react to them. You’ll likely discover that you still have the capacity to be enraptured by the world’s wonders as if you were seeing them for the first time. Today can be a wonderful time to visit the ocean, a city, or the countryside and attempt to view it from a child’s perspective.
Viewing the world with eyes unadulterated by cynicism and distrust can help you feel joyful. When you endeavor to observe life with the same free curiosity you expressed as a child, you can regain your sense of wonder and innocence. You will once again be able to see the world as filled with many simple yet wonderful beautiful things instead of a hotbed of controversy and strife. There is the potential for pure joy to come over you each time you look around you at all the blessings in your life. When you look at your world from a child’s perspective, you’ll be able to see its magic.
