Like a child

Like a child . . .

One of my childhood associations is eating a cold ice lolly on a hot day.

I found a treasure trove of different lollies recently made to be reminiscent of childhood sweets: Fruit Salads, Sherbet Dib Dabs, Nougat, Cola Bottles, Black Jacks. It is good to recall a positive simple memory from childhood and I am enjoying repeating the experience!

I can still really immerse myself in enjoying eating an ice lolly on a hot day. It is a simple pleasure. It uses all my senses.

Sometimes children seem to naturally be more mindful – be fully immersed in a moment – using all their senses.

Let the child in you live on. Enjoy a simple pleasure. Immerse yourself fully in it. There is a simplicity in the moment that you will relish.
