Be childlike, not childish.

Childlike is open, filled with wonder, curious, un-self-aware, fully engaged, operating without fear, pure heart, no filter, completely honest, and quick to forget, not precious whatsoever (they will spend 20 minutes building a tower with blocks only to knock it down instantly with utter glee), and they inspire everyone without fail. Childish is petty, stubborn, selfish, obstinate, it’s pouting instead of playing, it’s stunted, pathetic, it’s self-absorbed and blind to everything amazing that’s all around you at all times, sulking in a tiny corner of the world, tucked away in a shadow while the remainder of creation sparkles in glistening sunlight.
