Young.



I am young at heart.

"Don't let the world make you cold. Keep the child in you alive."

Whether you're 17 or 70, a young spirit is a great thing to have. Too often we see life's battles making people become bitter, boring and just blah! Have some fun! Sure we all have to be age appropriate with the things we get up to but it's important to just let loose from time to time. You don't have to go to the club to have fun! Play some music, dance around, watch a film, go swimming, or my personal fave, meet up with some friends and eat! Literally whatever you fancy, just make sure you enjoy your life along the way.

Little children are amazing! They are bold enough to do what they want, they can be crying one minute and laughing the next, they don't discriminate and in general just love being alive. Emulate some of those things. Depending on the stage you are at in life, different things may have happened. You might just be starting University or preparing for your first child. Regardless keep the little version of you alive, don't become someone who is just miserable all the time! Obviously as you grow older, you ought to know better than to do certain things but don't let the world rob you of that excitement you used to have as a child. The way you used to wake up with joy ready to tackle the day ahead, the way even a simple McD's happy meal toy could keep you happy for hours and how great you felt when someone said 'Well Done!' Keep that spirit alive and I promise you your days will be so much better!

By all means, take things seriously, not everything has to be turned into a joke. There is a difference between being childish and being young at heart. Having a 15 year old mentality at 25 isn't cute, but the same passion, enthusiasm and vibrant energy that you did when you were young is something to be celebrated! That kind of energy draws people in and is extremely contagious. So have some fun, get a laugh in everyday and enjoy the ride; it might not be all fun and games but life is meant to lived!

Stay Blessed,
Selorm
