Lessons we, as adults, can learn from children

We all know how difficult and stressful life as an adult can be, we’re constantly worrying about work or money or relationships. I think we can all agree that, from time to time, we should look the innocence of children for how to live our lives.

This is a thread for discussing that ethos.

I’ll go first: If you are struggling to put your jumper on the right way around, just remember that the label goes at the back so check to see where it is before you start off (this applies to most other clothing as well, not just jumpers)

if you’re struggling to hit your head, just watch kids run about. they fuckin charge into stuff constantly not giving a fuck.

I used to gallop around pretending to be a horse or riding a horse until I was about 12.
