I adore my nephew. Heâ€™s a good, well behaved and precocious kid. He has a passion for cooking make believe dishes and he frequently enlists my help as his sous chef whenever he comes over. I donâ€™t mind. I love playing with him anyway. But on one of these days, I started thinking how awesome it would be if we could all do some of things that kids do. Things like these:
Children have this really nice habit. At any given moment, if they find anything even remotely amusing, they smile this really broad and innocent smile which basically brightens the day of anyone who happens to be around them. Grown-ups can do that too. It might not have the same effect, but you will make someone happy for sure.
Kids are good at this too. Theyâ€™re all like, â€œMom gets a hug. Dad gets a hug. Grandma gets a hug. Come here doggy, you get a hug too.â€ Iâ€™m not saying you take this advice to heart and hug random strangers. But whenever you get the time of whenever you feel like it, dole out free hugs to your friends and family. And screw it, if you can pull it off, hug random strangers too.
