A hint to reconnect with our inner child
Joy is often a way to reconnect ourselves with the inner child. What does give us joy? Do we know it? If not what was something we really enjoyed to do when we where children?
For me, for example, was drawing and creating imaginary worlds in my mind. I also loved wandering in nature and collecting sticks, leaves, little rocks, shells but also bottle caps and whatever was interesting for me to create something new I could play with.
Today drawing is still something that gives me joy, as many other creative activities like writing, photography, ceramics, walking and noticing details in nature or things around me. I still love to build something new, for example starting a new project, working for a start up.
And this is a way to go back to ourselves when we feel disconnected, maybe lost doing the things we believe for some reasons... culture, education, society, religion... we have to do in our life but don't make us happy.
Let's go back to when we were little, still pure, still in touch with our soul and purpose for this life and ask: 'what was something I really loved to do or dream about?'
