I’m writing children’s stories at the moment.
It’s great forgetting the complex difficulties of being a grown up and just having fun writing about things like going to the shop, going to a party, smiling and playing.
My OCD appreciates days like this too.
No pressure, not too emotionally draining and it’s hard to be anxious when you are in a child’s mindset thinking how they think, seeing things for the first time, gently learning the rights and wrongs of life. If adults can be prone to thinking “glass half empty” then children and their imaginations are wired to the positive “glass half full” approach.
Sometimes, I think thatgrown ups would benefit from taking a few minutes each day to just be a big kid…not in an annoying way…but just to watch as a butterfly flits from flower to flower, to appreciate the smell of a freshly baked loaf of bread, an orange as it’s being peeled, to enjoy the feel of the breeze on your face as you run.
You get the idea…to reawaken ourselves to the appeal of things as if they are newly discovered.
And now, I’m going to pretend that I am a superhero cat and save someone.
Come on, join in, you know it sounds like fun!!!
