You can learn so much from kids and teens, their unfiltered view of the world and their ability to see things in a simplistic way. Seems as we grow older we attach a lot of unnecessary garbage to everything we experience in life as we grow older. I remember my father telling me a many of times that it isn’t as simple as that to me when i would express my opinions on things i observed as a child. I look back at a lot of those observations and i came to conclusion a good portion of them were that simple if not more so. Seems the older we get the more complicated we make life, we overthink most situations and add on beliefs and thoughts that complicates our lives. Some things are just black and white, those that are not are still not as complex as we make them. Sometimes i think we just allowed the world we live in to cloud our ability to see things clearly and block our ability to see things in their unadulterated pure form.
Much wisdom comes from the mouths of babes, the innocence they possess is a gift that allows them to see things as they really are.

The best reality check in the world is spending a few hours talking with and listening to little children. I love spending time with my 4 yr old granddaughter and 2 yr old grandson, they help me see the world again by viewing it through their eyes.
Yes, i always loved listening to how my niece saw things and still do , she has reached 9 years old now but still sees things so much differently than we adults do. so refreshing and enlightning 🙂
