Shawn Maxam thinks happiness comes from simple pleasures like seeing a baby smile.
Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.
Babies invoke a ton of adjectives. Cute, innocent, love and expensive. But babies are a perfect example of how we should all approach life.
Outside of actual necessities like food, shelter and love babies are easily entertained and content. Some might argue that’s because they aren’t contaminated by the evils and harsh realities of the world which is true but I’m not referring to their character, sense of self etc.
Babies don’t need iPads, game consoles, cable TV or the latest gadget to make them happy unless they’re the E-Trade baby of course (talk about needy).
Babies can play with spoons, blocks or even their own feet for hours. They will laugh at the same joke incessantly. What if we approached life with the same wide-eyed openness?
So next time you accuse me of acting like a kid just remember I actually have a reason for being a bit playful and childish.
