Always a child in my heart


Don’t forget to always stay a child in your heart!

Sometimes I think about growing up. And no, it doesn’t scare me, it’s just… it’s not how I imagined life. I don’t want worries and fears about tomorrow.

I want a life, like a child has. Not to worry about a single thing, just to live each day like it is the last one! Laugh a lot, do crazy stuff, buy an RV and travel the world. Quit your job, which doesn’t make you happy and go around the world and do what you always wanted to do. Sing, dance, laugh, paint, cook…

And sometimes you realise, you always have the child inside. It is here even now. The childlish me made me write all of this now. Made me think about going somewhere far away and be happy. It is always here that kid we have, we just need to stop for a second and listen…

What does it say?
