I have a new gift in the house ; one 36 inches panda that I was gifted last weekend. 36 inches = a few feet and many inches shorter than me! And now , a corner of my house looks like this – happy !
A corner cheerfully reminds me of my not-so-long-ago childhood.
The monkey (in the middle ) is one of my nephew’s favorite. He almost wanted to run away with it and he had to compete with me really hard for its possession.
The other one ( and the oldest) is two of my nieces’ favorite thing . They hug it , take a nap on it , snuggle happily . But after that little love affair , they leave it for their aunt ,again, at that corner !
I have a huge plush toy collection at my parent’s place. Some of them were donated , some of them are still waiting for my visit ! I know I will never be too old to stop loving them.
About love , I observed two things I love in people : when children talk wise things ; like a few children in my family actually talk about world problems and how all problems can be treated by science and technology !
And , when grown ups do not remove their childhood from life ! When talks are not always about latest phones, technology , peer pressure , weight loss , marriage , coach bags but about plush toys , pencils , new style sharpener , multi-colored backpacks , neon sneakers.
Someone asked me why I love my butterfly printed backpack so much. I had to smile – “Why should children have all the fun?!”
No one can tell you how to live your life ! You have to explore every possible way you come across ; you should not stop until you find the best way to live your life .
And that “best” way is a myth!
But that’s a grown up’s secret!
So ,for now , live your life exactly the way you want ; because , “Nothing spoils fun like finding out it builds character”.
