Here’s Why You Should Keep A Childlike Attitude, Always. (+OOTD Pictures,Included)

It seems like we spend our entire lives wishing to grow up and when we finally do, we only wish to be children again.

Examine a typical day in an adult’s life : Wake up, go to work, drown yourself in said work, drink copious amounts of coffee, work some more, and then go home. You may be doing nothing that is actually fun, playful or childlike. Instead, we run our lives with things and commitment that are supposed to be so productive that there is no time to have fun and that fun isn’t considered important.

Even when we define fun, we envision things like crashing out in front of the TV, drinking excessively or isolating ourselves from life and what it may offer. Oh, let’s not forget binging on Netflix and spending hours and hours on the internet.

The day we lost the ability to play heartily and regularly is the point we needed it the most!

When we play, I mean, really play, we abandon a lot of commitments, basking in complete freedom : no structure. Just creative, joyful bliss. We are fully engaged in the present and we leave all worries behind.

It’s almost pointless to think of it as young adults, because, let’s face it, somehow, the things we have piled up to do always comes back to eat us up while we are playing and so we start to feel guilty.

But then, why would anyone want to dedicate most of their adult life to doing something they did not enjoy or never had fun doing? I mean, fun is the good stuff. That is being alive, right?

Don’t let others rob you of your playfulness, do not let fear of rejection or ridicule stop you from being playful, just remember that if you do it gradually, step-by-step and build up, the more playful you are, the easier it gets.

Perhaps it means sharing jokes, pulling legs, dancing, singing, kicking a ball around, dressing up, having party games, going for walks or bike rides, or going to war with a group of 3-8 year olds armed with long balloons! However you do it, playing genuinely in childlike fashion will also ensure that you receive a wide array of psychological, physiological and emotional benefits. – Adam Eason blog

What I Wore || ORANGE IS THE HAPPIEST COLOR!

“Orange is the happiest color.” – Frank Sinatra

I know, another post already? Wow!

I’m on a roll here. Let’s be happy about that.

Today, I thought I’d share this post with you all. I finally went to church after about 3 weeks and after church I had an impromptu photo session and I loved the outcome!

 

Here in Hungary, we’ve not had the prettiest weather. It has been so cold, dark and gloomy. You would always find me at home with no motivation to even do anything. So when the sun came out yesterday, I had to take all the advantage!

I wore a simple Orange blouse and paired it with black jeans and black boots.

I wore minimal accessories. Just a bracelet and a watch.

This orange top was an old one I always skeptical to wear because I thought it was too colorful. However, I ended up loving it when I wore it.

OUTFIT DEETS:

TOP – H&M

JEANS – ZARA

BOOTS – NEW LOOK (GIFTED)

Side note :I really hope I pulled off this post, I’m not a fashion blogger but who knows? 😉

Have the loveliest week ahead!
