Act like a kid.
Yesterday I checked my Doodle Cards archive and saw what I did a year ago. My ‘old’ Doodle Cards were much bolder and powerful than what I’ve created recently.
I started drawing again in May last year. Then I started posting my doodles on Instagram and got 5-10 Likes at a maximum. But at that time I really enjoyed drawing like a kid. I just focused on and had fun with drawing, and didn’t care what others think. I noticed that, over months, I might have lost a sense of this kind of excitement.
From time to time, we have to remind ourselves of the excitement of acting like a kid. We have to remember how we feel when we pour our energy and focus into what we do now.
If you don’t know where to start, you should probably start from these three small things:
- Laugh more often.
- Ask why more often.
- Express yourself more boldly.
These are not difficult things to do; but it’s quite easy to forget or ignore them. For grown-ups, acting like a kid is one of the skills to be brushed up.
