#201. DON’T grow up.

28 Comments 16 August 2012

I still dip my finger in the peanut butter jar, still lick the wooden spoon clean of cake mix and still pretend I’m Peter Daicos whenever I’m kicking the football. I still get excited at Christmas time, still do bombs into pools, and if society would let me, I’d still peg footy cards in my spokes and make my bike sound like a motorbike. Yep, it’s nice to know that when we grow older, we don’t always have to grow up. Whatever you do that keeps you young, keep on doing it.

    What a fantasitic blog! Although I think grow up it’s sort of a natural rule that no one can avoid, playfulness, which we always consider is mostly belong to kids, actually it’s very important to grown-ups as well. Look at the kids around us sometimes, and I’m sure we’ll get what Glenn trying to tell:) Love the blog

    You’re only as old as you feel. Letting that inner child out keeps your skin smooth, and your eyes sparkling, it keeps the laughter in your heart even when the burdens of being grown up have it sinking to the ground. Never put that child in the corner. I find at the times when I shun her aside, are the time I need her the most.

    I will never grow up. I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing? I am in my mid forties but feel like a kid at heart. I see it as a blessing but I think I irritate those around me sometimes. Great topic. This could go on for a long time. Best wishes!

    Guess my kid will be disappointed a little, watching his 30 years old dad riding bicycle with a post card in a wheel.) Anyway, do what you wanna do, otherwise you wouldn’t be happy. )
