I am behaving just like a child who has just learnt writing and he goes on scribbling on very available material where he can write or like a child who has been gifted a colour box. Same ways he goes on trying out new colours, new combinations and tries to paint everything around him.
And that is what I have been doing since last one week. When I became a blogger I just chose the easily available template. While visiting other people’s blog I always used to wonder how come they have such eye catching lay outs?
Then suddenly while surfing on Google I came across the word blogger templates and Gosh! I am become like an alcoholic who is so addicted to his booze and has got so tipsy that he can’t see anything else then his fill.
Changing my blog lay out has become not only an obsession but I suppose some psychologist may classify my behavior as obsessive compulsive neurosis. I feel compelled to go on various sites and choose various layouts. During past one week I have visited so many sites on blog templates that no wonder I may get a response from some site “lady no more visit to our site, you have crossed all the limits”.
I not only visit but I download various templates, try them out in my blog , leave it for few hours and then again I am on my hunt for new pastures. And seeing the new look makes me glee like a child. and it gives me a different high to see my blog decorated with new colours and designs.
My this behavior reminded me of famous Psychologists Eric Berne and Thomas A Harris and their famous books GAMES PEOPLE PLAY AND I AM OK YOU ARE OK) ,. In these books they talks about how there is a child hidden in every individual and how the child asserts itself and peeps out from our adult body. And, how our day to day behavior is divided into PARENT CHILD AND ADULT. Our each act is manifestation of either of these three.
So, my this fascination to try out new lay outs is actually my hidden child who is dying to come out from my grown up self to remind me of his existence and also to remind me that to enjoy life, to behave like a child is no crime and I will not be incriminated .
Hey, everyone who is reading this blog ----------let the child in you surface out although the child makes his presence felt in every one’s life daily like when we get angry, we throw temper tantrums,when we fight, when we demand things like children do, we clap our hands when we are happy and so on and so forth.
But I would say make a conscious effort to enjoy small things of life, celebrate like a child does ,giggle , jump with joy and become forgiving like children. Do not let the adult and parent in you dominate your life so as to make it dull and boring . Release the child in you from your adult body and let it emerge and help you sail through the traumas of adulthood
CHEERO and WELCOME to the child in you
