Through the eyes of a child

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
– Little Gidding, T.S. Eliot

I grew up in Singapore but have now spent more than half my life in the UK. When I go back to see my family, the place is simultaneously familiar and strange. I’ve learnt that the best way to appreciate things is to look at them not just as a visitor but like a child, valuing the wonder of it all.

This world is waiting for you to see it from ever-new perspectives and to keep discovering it, as if for the first time.

  1. So true, always best to view the world with child eyes of joy and excitement. We get so lost in grown up busyness and how we should behave, that we forget to just let ourselves be.

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment Kerry. Sometimes putting aside the cynicism and jadedness can be the best thing we can do for ourselves 🙂
