I went for a walk through south campus again today. I love it. It soothes the silly teenage insecurities and worries in my mind. It reminds me how insignificant we all are in the grand scheme of things, why waste a short life span? It reminds me to be happy about what is good, try to change that which is not good and ignore the things I cannot alter.
But on my way home, as I was crossing the road, I came across a small girl and her mother. The girl had a little bubble blower. She had covered the entire road in small, floating, glistening, soapy, colourful bubbles. You should have seen it, everyone smiling at something so simple.
Taking joy out of the simple things is what really matters. That’s the key to happiness I think.
Child at Heart
It is often said by our parents that life is so much easier when we are younger. I don’t necessarily believe that to be true. Life always seems to be hard. I just think that when we are younger, we are still able to find joy in life. For example, the other day, I played “Hide and Seek”, I’m 18. Most people would say I’m too old for things like that, but I had fun.
I hope I don’t grow up into the type of person who forgets to have fun. I don’t want to be bitter at the world. This world is the only one I’ve got and all in all, for me, it’s pretty good. It is said that ours is “a world so full of beauty that beauty goes overlooked”. I never want to forget the simple things that make life so much richer. I wish to remain a child at heart forever.
