Day 19: Something you miss

Childhood Innocence.

Once lost, it’s something that we will never be able to retrieve again.
It’s hard to believe that there was once a time when we were naive to the world in general.
There was a time when we were in the dark about a lot of things, but at the same time, we didn’t know any better.
Everyday, we were able to go carefree with the most stimulating activities being wondering what the next meal would be or when a favorite cartoon show would  come on TV or whether or not the omnipotent boundaries of “bed time” could be lengthened.
Our minds were free from the taint the knowledge of the world brought us.
No cynicism. No bitterness. No limitations.
There was such a time when we didn’t understand the harsh realities of life. Nor were we expected to understand these things.
Now, we need not only face the problems head-on, but also figure out the solutions ourselves.

The only premise we are offered is that the greater joy can only be achieved through greater understanding and, therefore, greater appreciation.
