Childhood Down The Memory Lane

"Why didn't I just remain a child?" I asked no one in particular as I rested my head on the pillow thinking of how hectic my day went.

Being a child is a wonderful experience for me, if not for anyone else. If I were a magician, I would turn the hands of time. "Now you're thinking like a child," I smiled to myself. There I was, wondering if I should take some snacks before retiring to bed, but I was being cautious because I was watching my weight. If I were a child, I would just eat anything and care less about my weight.

Earlier that morning, I had to empty my wardrobe searching for an attire that fit the day's event because I sure wanted to appear very attractive. If I were a child, any attire goes as far as you'd hype it as beautiful. You don't even need to do that; I would be more concerned about what I'm going to do at the event than the attire I put on.

Instead of being bothered if Bode loves me for who I am, If I were a child, I wouldn't care about that. I wouldn't be concerned about the opinion of others. The belief would remain 'I'm loved.' If I were a child, I wouldn't long for the support of my families and friends because they would always be there to guide, teach and direct me in every aspect.

Children don't worry about life nor about tomorrow. They take life easy. They are carefree, simple, and friends to everybody as far as you're ready to play with them. Children are indeed God's gift!

What did you enjoy as a child?

Tell me about it😊
