I'm constantly reminded about stress. It permeates my body, mind, and soul from my day job. So lately I've been committed to finding solutions or mindsets that can contribute to a calmer demeanor. Sometimes I've felt like it's not obtainable, so I started thinking about who is happy in my life.
Immediately, I think of all the children under the age of ten that I know. They go around constantly curious and insanely happy. There's a cheery attitude that I admire about kids. However, with every laugh comes some crazy meltdowns. We're talking epic proportions. But you know what I always notice about the meltdowns? Give them ten minutes, and it's over. They move on.
So my takeaways from studying children is the following:
1. Always be curious.
2. Meet new situations with a positive mindset.
3. Allow for meltdowns or bad moments, but put a small time limit on it.
4. And finally, probably the most important lesson I need to learn, figure out how to LET GO.
Are there any lessons you've learned from kids? Tell me in the comments below.
