Because I Am Not A Kid Anymore

How are you all? It's been a gloomy day. I felt like sleeping, but my workload keeps on stopping me. This kind of weather makes me want to eat all day, watch Netflix and chill.

Yesterday rained so hard. My youngest sister went outside to play early in the morning because it was sunny then but when it was lunch time, she came back because it was raining really hard.

My mom saw that my youngest sister's friends are taking a bath under the rain. My younger sister asked if she could try it too. She hasn't experienced it yet because she always decline whenever we tell her to enjoy the rain.

Now that she's a bit grown, heck time flies! she's already tall, she wanted to experience it with her friends. Luckily, my mom allowed her and off she went! I thought my mom would disagree because at times, she's a killjoy.

Before my youngest sister go out of the house, she asked me if I wanted to go too since my eyes shine whenever I ask her to enjoy it. Of course I said no.

She asked, 'Why not?'

My petty answer? Because I'm not a kid anymore.

I laughed at her reaction because this is how she reacted:

Her reaction: What? I don't get it.

Then she went outside to have fun.

I actually contemplated the words I uttered. Why do I, or maybe, we, use this kind of excuse in having fun?

There are times when I want to do what kids do. When I babysit my nieces and nephews, when I take care of my younger students, I feel like playing with them too. Playing freely, enjoying and not minding what other people would say. Now that I know better, why do I push the kids to have fun while here I am, restricting myself? haha funny how ironic it is!

Have you experienced it before? When you want to play in the playground, wanted to try those rides for kids (I remember @Ayane-chan, she mentioned before that she likes to ride the train for kids but then she remembered she's not a kid anymore, hello Ayane!) but you can't because for us, only kids can have fun, but that should not be the case.

I don't want my sister to think that having fun starts and ends with being a kid and that when you grow up, you can't have fun anymore because all you'd think about is how other people perceive you.

So, what did I do?

I joined her and her friends and that is one of the best decisions I've ever made! It was liberating! I felt free and happy at the same time.

We shouldn't suppress ourselves from having fun. Play that game. Enjoy that ride. (even if it's the ride for adults, go ahead 🤣, if you know what I mean!) It's worth our time.


When was the last time you enjoyed showering in the rain?

When there are no adults nearby in parks, I push those kids aside in a gentle way and slide in their rides or even swings, lol. Sometimes they accept and sometimes they rebel.

Do you know I'm about to graduate from medical school but I still play with kids and enjoy playing with their games more than adults talk, age is just a number you can enjoy anything you want and I'm glad you finally decided to go out and have fun like kids, it's the best medicine for the soul

Hahah I just did shower in the rain yesterday and mama won't be angry anymore because she's living in a different house. I was doing the laundry outside when rain poured so strong that I couldn't resist playing. Thing that I refrain from doing, although its given, is hugging male cousins or friends. I used to do it before until I learned to protect myself because I'm no longer a kid.

It's okay to put boundaries in hugging male cousins and friends though :)
Wow! For sure you had some fun 🥰

It's been a while since I allowed myself to have fun and just be carefree. Thanks for reminding me that we shouldn't hold our selves back from enjoying and appreciating life.

If I could only join the kids just like bathing in the rain that time but then, it would be too embarassing for me to join those kids in the train. HAHAHA.

Ako naman eh nagliliwaliw din paminsan-minsan at nakikipaglaro sa mga pamangkin ko. We may not be kids anymore, but we can still enjoy life.
