8 Quotes on why we need to connect with our inner child
Two weeks ago my son asked me why children were considered so creative in the eyes of past geniuses like Albert Einstein. I said, Elijah when children are born they are constantly making discovery. On the other hand some adults want to fit in by following social expectations or social constructed rules. For instance, gender roles are socially constructed, when a baby is born he or she is not aware of gender roles; until the adults around the child's life, tells them what society expects from each gender.
For this reason, as children get older they stop doing "child things" whatever society believes to be for children adults wont do.
In fact, Last week I wrote a blog post called, "Why and how should we celebrate our small achievements" When I wrote the blog post I did it with the intentions of observing people's opinions, when it comes to engaging in child like activities.
I suggested a sticker reward system, many adults couldn't see themselves using stickers, since it was connected to a child reward system. Some said that their older children were abandoning stickers due to aging.
This made me ponder on who decided that a reward sticker system is only for children, or that simple small rewards were not for adults. However, I did find some rebels (creative thinking people) who added to my reward sticker system by suggesting the scratch and sniff stickers, which I loved and will be buying.
For this reason, I decided to share 8 quotes about embracing our inner child. Adults like, Albert Einstein, Walt Disney and other famous artists, never disconnected from their inner child. These geniuses didn't conform to social traditional rules, instead they followed their curious, playful nature, that drove them to create big things.
I hope that the above quotes sparks something within you, that will allow you to embrace your inner child. For this reason, tomorrow I will be speaking about "Mental Triggers" and why is so hard for us to change or even embrace our inner child. (maybe embracing your inner child means to go back to unpleasant memories of rejection and depression) stay tuned.
