Children- Let’s Reconnect to the Children Within Us All

November 10, 2010

In our Ego2Heart workshops we are being reminded of learning to connect to our inner child. The greatest gift of becoming older is to continue to see the world in the awe and wonder of an innocent child.

Fun, Laughter, and Enthusiasm…We should strive to keep that childlike spirit in our work and our play. When we grow up we take ourselves way too seriously, and sometimes we become a heart attack waiting to happen.

No Limit Thinking…As children we believe that we might become president, a great artist or a great explorer. But as adults we begin to put fences around those dreams.

No Inhibitions…Children speak from the heart, and as adults we should strive to do more of that.

Read People and Situations…Children can see past the trappings of material success and see into the core of people. As we grow older we begin to label people, and as the saying goes, “labeling is disabling.”

Creativity and Imagination…A great philosopher once observed, “Genius is childhood recaptured at will.” The imagination and creativity we had at five too often begins to fade at fifteen.
