Passion through the eyes of our inner child
As a child everything seems so simple.
We explore activities with no inhibitions, no expectations.
We see possibilities through untainted glasses.
We create, discover, explore.
We try, we make mistakes, we learn, then try again.
We discover activities which capture our imagination.
We get completely lost in the moment and nothing else matters.
We fall into a trance, where time seems of no significance.
In these moments we feel free, invincible, full of life's possibilities.
We find others that share our interests and imaginations.
They become our closest friends and fellow students of our shared passions.
There are others that become our teachers, our mentors.
They see our possibilities, they nurture our potential.
They challenge and push our boundaries of what's possible.
Then one day we grow up, and our inner child becomes a distant memory.
The opinions and expectations of others get in the way.
We fear failure, so we don't even try.
We become an inhibited version of ourselves and scrape the surface of our potential.
We never discover our real destiny.
We never find our true success.
If we look deep enough however, we'll find that our inner child is still there.
Waiting to be unleashed.
We can rediscover those moments where;
we see no boundaries,
we're not afraid to fail,
we feel invincible,
we don't over think it, we just do us.
We can again become creators and explorers of what's possible.
We can again be our inner child.
