Little minds!

               Innocence. Purity of heart. Unvitiated minds. Where do we find these qualities in abundance? In children, of course! Who else, but these little people, who fill our world with happiness and laughter, and give us  hopes for a better tomorrow!

Today, as I sat wondering about the topic to write on, my 6 year old nephew plonked himself by my side and asked me what I was up to. I showed him my blog, and told him how I wrote essays on different subjects. However, it being nearly the end of the day, I was at my wits end coming up with a topic.  He promptly began shooting off things that came to his mind; things that I could write about. Being the helpful little guy that he is, he also narrated a story his teacher told him in school, and suggested I write it on my blog!

My overwhelmed heart couldn’t wrap itself around this little fellow! I was drenched to the core with his outpouring of love through this very simple gesture. For, I very well know, had I asked someone else  to suggest some topics to write on, they would have  asked me to leave them in peace.

How I wish children  never grew up to be the careless, heartless,conniving  adults that we all metamorphose into, once we reach that age. How I wish the innocence, the affection and the unconditional love they have in abundance heightens with time! Wouldn’t the world be a much happier place to be in?

Do you know the secret to living a happy life? Eat. Pray. Love. Or, watch what you eat, wish well for all and fill your heart with love! That's precisely what I try to do through my blogs: 'Metanoia', the wellness blogazine, and 'Fictionista', my blog for fiction and non-fiction. Welcome to my virtual homes!
