I mean, I get it. We as adults tend to hold back our joy for fear of being called immature. Just as we choose to judge and reject others without even getting to know them first. We’ve put our lives in abrupt forward momentum and constantly snap judge and micromanage every single moment of our day bringing on this vicious cycle of guilt about the past and worry about the future. How do we come from a place as children where we live and find happiness in the present moment, with little regard for what is looming on the horizon, to the constant angst of adulthood? In so many ways keeping the heart of a child is such a good thing. After all, it’s number one rule is to seek joy anywhere you can find it. Laugh at a rolly polly puppy whose only requirement for play is itself and the ground, feel tickling comfort from the warm fuzzy blanket as you pull it from the dryer, how can your heart not melt when a cat loves you so unconditionally that it leaves it’s motor-running when you are near? So often when we are looking backward with guilt and forward with anxiety we forget to actually live with all of our senses. We have five, why should any receive less attention than another?
The take from? Sure, I get it, we are adults and should worry a little about adult things in order to survive. But if you reflect deeply on this, if you spend your entire life guilting backwards and worrying forwards, when you get to the definitive end, your most finite forward, all you will have left in that split second of time is a last few moments to guilt backward, because that is all their will be, guilt for all you forgot to care about and find joy in. How I got from being an elf to this, I’ve no clue, but I do know I found joy in the moment of living as if I were an elf. And I reckon that’s what is important to a living life fully. At least that’s just my two cents worth on it.
