If we experienced life through the eyes of a child, everything would be magical and extraordinary. Let our curiosity, adventure and wonder of life never end.- Akiane Kramarik
You ever put on an old song and just get brought back to another time? I love when I can just put my music on and it’s like I’m time traveling. It’s like I’m going back in time when I first heard that song. The feelings that I felt years ago suddenly come rushing back.
Today I’ve been listening a lot to the Grease soundtrack and that movie brings back so many memories for me. It was the first musical I ever watched and me and my mom would watch it over and over again when I was a little girl. When I listened to it today it’s like I went back in time to the first time I watched the movie with my mom and we sung along to the music. It still gives me the same happy energy that I felt when I was a small child.
I think that’s one reason I really love music as much as I do. It can give you such a special feeling. Honestly it’s one of the best feelings in the world to me when I can hear an old song come on, on the radio that I haven’t heard in years and just feel that same feeling I felt years ago come over me again. To me that’s just amazing.
I also get that feeling when I watch an old movie or t.v. show. It’s like this extreme nostalgia comes over me. It sounds weird but when I feel this old, nostalgic feeling I wonder how the old me would view my life now. I try to view things from a different perspective. It’s like “how would I think of this situation if I was still a child?”
If you all haven’t tried doing this before I highly suggest it. It’s really cool trying to look at world through the lens of a child. What’s so beautiful about children is when something happens to them it’s brand new and they have this cool perspective of the world. Then sadly their perspective tends to get warped by other people’s perspective. So instead of viewing something as they want to view it they start viewing it the way other people do because they feel like that is the “right way” of viewing something. Which I think is pretty messed up.
Today I want to dare all of you to look at something in your life as a child would- like it was the first time. Stop letting others morph your idea of how something should be or feel. Have your own perspective. View things like it’s your first time ever viewing it. Shut everyone else’s voices out and just listen to your own voice. Let your feelings be like when you heard a song for the first time as a child. Challenge yourself to go back in time with your perspective.
Thank you all for reading!
