Growing up is inevitable. The journey of life, takes one, on various challenges, some smooth and some rough.
To navigate the rough seas a person might have to inculcate new habits. Some of them might be desirable and others might not be. As one grows older it is important to keep the inner child alive. This is a challenge.
The inner child is fundamentally, a seed of innocence, nurtured by love of parents and or near ones, in an atmosphere that shields against the harsh realities of life, to some extent.
Later in the journey of life, when the harsh realities spring up, in the quest to grow and adapt, usually the inner child looses out – the essence of true innocence. At times it happens knowingly and at times unknowingly.
What matters is how to keep it alive and healthy against the ill tides.
Here comes into picture the memories of our parents and near ones who have selflessly nurtured this gift for us and guided us. Try to remember their words of inspiration, deeds of kindness that sheltered your innocent mistakes and guided your path whenever the need be. It was done as for every parent or guardians their child is a gift with responsibilities.
Try to find strength to fight the ill times with dignity and honour in the memories of those who made you capable enough to stand and stay in this world. Let your actions be a worthy tribute to those memories.
The above needs to be done so that the light of beacon of all that is good that you received is passed around to current and future generations.
A worthy tribute to the giants on whose shoulders we stand.
