Once there was a boy who became a man. Sometimes the line between the two gets blurred…not always such a bad thing. As the adage goes, “Boys will be boys”, which basically means that men don’t fully evolve into stodgy curmudgeons as many believe to be the case. I admit that some men become just that, but most don’t.
Among the men I know, the majority have an inner child wanting to break out on occasion simply to feel the joy of youth again. I am such a man. Whether it is wrestling with their children or grand children, having squirt gun battles, flying kites, running through the rain, playing games or a host of other child-like things, “Boys will be boys”.
I sense that women have this same urge to visit their inner child, but it seems to reveal itself in less demonstrative ways! Regardless if we are male or female the windows to our past have the ability to launch us into a carefree world we once inhabited. Even if our positive experiences are for only a moment, they are to be cherished.
Windows too often become obscured rather quickly which is why it is imperative to be opportunistic when it comes to exploring our inner child. Here’s hoping your windows become crystal clear.
