Stop being such an adult and start acting more like a kid.

The adult that we embody is stopping us from reaching our full potential. We need to set the child within us free and be all that we can be!

Moooommmm… Can I please go to my friend’s house?!? Please… Come on… Why?!?! Please let me go… I promise I’ll be good!!

Can anyone relate to that one conversation around 99% of all children have with their parents?

I sure can!

I remember being persistent to a point where my parents would cave in to my wishes. Well… Not always. But the point is I used to be quite tireless pursuing whatever my ambition was, and that sort of changed with the process of becoming an adult. Somewhere along the way I heard too many times that it was not acceptable to act certain ways and that inhibited my ability to go after my deepest dreams. I had to stop dreaming and set my feet on the ground.

With time and retrospect, I came to realize that I should probably stop being such an adult and start acting more like a child. As the adult that I have become I tend to overthink everything and ponder every outcome to a point where I’m no longer tolerant of risk. This intolerance I’ve developed refrains me from acknowledging certain opportunities and therefore my life stagnated like that of most adults out there.

The time has come once again to embrace my inner child. To seek my dreams in a restless way, facing rejection and never taking no for an answer. Imagine outcomes, solutions and new approaches. Be more inventive and imaginative. Create, make and remain tireless.

I’m doing this, how about you?

  1. absolutely. and one of the great things about coding is, you get to play with the computer more because the answer is always “yes, so long as you do your chores.” (the “chore” being learning– which can also be fun.)
