Simplicity – Life Through A Child’s Eyes

IMG_20160610_195307

Playin’ in the dirt. A little boy thing.

Can you remember when you were a kid? The simplicity of life and carefree days was what life was all about.

Back before ya had to worry about bills, or getting up early, just to face another long day at work. Before responsibility was even a word in your vocabulary.

Usually, the most complex thing about that life was trying to decide what we were going to do that day. Were we gonna play on the mountain? How about a game of army around the houses? There were lots of good hidin’ places to be found.

I feel sorry for a lot of kids these days. They have never known the pure joy of just running through the woods, chasin’ their imagination. No, they are too involved and lost in their phones, tablets, computers, and games.

Oh they know how to play and have outside fun when they are real little, like toddler little up to about 6 or 7, then they get interested in technology and forget all about God’s playground and all the mysteries and wonders that await them.

I try to get my lilman outside as much as possible during the summer and away from all the tech stuff. My only regret is that he doesn’t have a circle of friends like I did, other kids to play with, fight and argue with, grow up with and become lifelong friends.

I’m afraid a huge portion of a child of today’s simplicity is gone forever, lost in the never-ending reaches of the internet and social media. I feel sorry for them and their future. Even if they grow up in a mostly technological world, they will never know the true joy and happiness that simplicity would bring to their adult life.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
