Take a moment to reminisce and visualize the carefree childhood runs, where the joy of the act, made even your aching lungs feel, oh so mild. Elated with giddiness as the breeze touched your face, even as you stumble over the stone, that gave you a scar for life. Catch yourself grinning ? Of course, the adrenaline of an adventure is the reason behind that smile.
So I beg you to end the exhaustive attempts to lock away your inner child. Heed to the wisdom that came with birth, burn those inhibitions and let your mistakes run wild.
The humiliation you anticipate and the embarrassment you fear from failure, are the children of Ego, a false idea of self, we harbor and pile.
Disinterest in seeking validation is the antidote to an otherwise, miserably hollow life. I say, screw the theme and let's all go freestyle. Embracing uniqueness to leave foot prints of it, in our creations, making our time on this planet worthwhile.
