As we grow mature and old the biggest change that comes in a person is that they loose that innocence and purity. Have you ever thought what a child thinks when he/she stares at you, i really wonder. You smile at them and they'll smile back, wink your eyes and they'll wink back at you: its just so pristine. It just seems that their world is magical, they sparkle in their eyes, the beauty of their smile; adventurous and wild.
So just when the word seems harsh and everything just seems upside down, don't give up. Just find the child inside you find you and let it be free and see everything fall in place.
