The Innocence of Childhood
My sister celebrated entering a new age decade today. Got me thinking, how we gain perspective as we age and lose innocence along the way. Small pleasures cease to provide enormous satisfaction, and ‘enough’ is just not enough any longer. When traveling, you get to see so many children – I watch their innocence and wonder how long before they grow up and get to conform to an expectation or a label.
Although growing up is inevitable (at least in most cases), I hope we all find our way back to that childhood innocence with the help of a person, a memory, or an event. That is the place where hope lives and comfort thrives when the adult world seems pointless. Dedicating this post to the lucky ones that still have the gift of innocence.
