Once Upon a Time, We Were All a Baby

I love how babies don’t conceal their emotions, at all times the express exactly how they feel. If they need to throw a temper-tantrum and cry, exactly where they are is as convenient a place as ever. And a moment later they will smile and laugh. They can be over it just as quickly. When someone or something makes them mad they give it a slap or shove. They run with joy and squeal as loud as they want. If they want to play they just start the game. They talk to themselves and no one thinks it’s weird. And if a baby needs a snuggle, they can approach anyone and no one will turn them away.

Sometimes I think the world would be a much better place if we developed less inhibition and acted more like we were as babies. What if we spent one day, acting on every emotional up and down we felt to its fullest extent?
