Unleash your inner child! – How do you unleash yours?

Hi everyone

Every now and again, I post a post from my www.beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com blog, that I think may be of interest to you, so here it is.

Many a time I hear people saying, I am too old for this or that. Why?

I hear people say I can’t do that now, but I used to do that when I was younger. What’s stopping them from doing it now?

People say I did that, but now I am a grown up. Like not doing a specific thing, makes you grown up, it doesn’t. Being grown up, means different things to different people. Being grown up, in the real sense, means you have physically grown in some way. ‘Grown up’ is a concept and a state of mind.

However, being grown up also comes with stereotypes of what society generally dictates, is acceptable to do, at a certain age.
Being quirky, and embracing my own quirky, you can imagine that I break and defy most of these and I have no shame in doing so.

Having had counselling in the past for depression, I learnt a little about the concept of the inner child and parent within me. At the time, I didn’t really fully grasp the concept. It was after freeing myself from depression, with no medication, and doing a lot to help myself, that I began to understand how these played a vital role in my recovery. Nowadays,the parent and child roles within me, are crucial in maintaining my own mental health and wellbeing each and every day, so as not to fall back into a depressive state.

The parent within me, loves me and nutures me. It gives me positive self talk. It gives me comfort, hope, support and reasoning. If I ever feel down, it lets me know that things will improve and get better. It’s always there in the background should I need it.

The child within me, is no longer just within me, it is me, and I Iove it. It allows my creative mind to be unleashed, to think for itself, to be free flowing and to guide, lead and tell me what to do next. It does this in the most profound and magical way and I am blessed. It’s great for writing, coming up with creative solutions and living a quirky life that is rich with diversity, rewarding and fulfilling.

I encourage you to unleash your inner child. To let go of your inhibitions that stop you from thinking freely and creatively, and that imprison your mind.

Young children try new things, they want to do what pleases them. They like to explore new things. They express themselves freely in the moment, without worrying about what other’s think. They are a bundle of energy and life. If someone tells them they can’t do something, they want to defy the odds, go their own way and just do it. By finding and using these inner child attributes as an adult, there are no limits to what you can accomplish in your life.

By unleashing your inner child, it will free you from the restrictive thoughts and limiting beliefs of your own mindset. This will set you free on the path to success in every aspect of your life. You can be your authentic self. You can be truly unstoppable.

In my past life, as I refer to it, I was old before my time. Now, although I am older in birth certificate age, I am younger, and the authentic quirky me, who I was always born and meant to be. My time for living a young, quirky life, is now. I have unleashed my inner child. How have you unleashed yours?

How do you unleash your inner child?

Write soon and embrace your quirky.

  1. It’s about keeping our childlike wonderment throughout life that keeps us young I think, being able to appreciate those things that really matter…and that means knowing how to enjoy ourselves as you do Sandra. You have come a long way baby and it’s wonderful to read posts like this 🙂 If more people learnt to unleash their inner child, it would be a much happier place I think. I’m so proud of you 🙂


    1. Hi Sherri, sorry for the delay in replying, I am mega busy at the moment with tight deadlines. Awwww thank you so much Sherri for your beautiful words, I can’t thank you enough, they have touched my heart in the most incredible way and I feel uttery empowered by them. You are always there for me and your encouragement and support is incredible, always. Thanks for calling me baby, that’s so sweet – and I feel even younger. I do believe embracing the child within us, allows us to remain youthful. Thanks for your email, I will reply to that to tonight. Hope your mouth feels better soon.

    1. Awesome that you like and enjoy those things. Glad to hear you are embracing your quirky. I am the same. I have guineapigs, watch Disney and Pixar films, get excited about Christmas, and have Christmas decorations in every room of my flat. Including the loo, shower rooms and kitchen. I plan to be like that still, when I am in my 80s and forever. I wear Disney PJs most of the time, it’s great. Being quirky, and proud of it, no one dares to say I am too old.

    1. Hi Marilyn, that’s awesome. I think that’s why you have kept your youthful looks, because you have play time on a regular basis. I think people should ditch the cosmetic approach and go for the young, fun, quirky self approach.
