The chatty girl

By | August 30, 2016

Ding..ding.. Someone is ringing the bell.. While opened the door, I found my neighbour little girl. The red apple cheeks reminded me of my childhood days, playing all around.  She was playing outside since it being a holiday. She wanted some water, that’s why called me.  I thought she will be going to play again after having water.

But to my surprise she just stood there after having water. So I couldn’t get back to my work. I just enquired on her schooling and all. And then she opened her chatter box.

She started to tell me about her school, teachers, classes, friends…she never had a full stop. She was talking non-stop, linking one thing to another even though I didn’t ask much.

I thought she will be demanding one more glass of water..;)

She was least bothered whether I was listening or not. (may be she felt that she was talking to someone of her same age ;).. )She was just releasing all her thoughts and continued with her story.

She had an art of letting go of her thoughts and words in the way she wanted. And I felt I had a lot to study from her. So I didn’t tell her to stop even though there were works awaiting my attention.

    So sweet… and you too, for being there to listen. Obviously she needed someone to talk to, to release. Wonderful life anecdote.

    one of the most confusing moments of life where I have no clue who’s more amazing .. the girl who opened up, the woman who listened or/and both

    Ah! The innocence of childhood! There are so many things that children teach us if only we listen from the heart.

    Remember MIB, the trials where Will Smith is recruited? It was a small girl with a big fat book on neuroscience who turned out to be the alien, not any of those other gross looking monsters and adults.

            Though his body says stop
            His spirit cries, never!

            All the films that came after .. Have the same theme, same kind of making of the body fitter, same kind of reserve. Heard zinda from bhag milka?

      We expect people to be kind and well-behaved right? The foundation begins from childhood itself. If we are mean or blunt with them, they may end up doing the same when they grow up.

    You did that right Akhila. Maybe, she needs an outlet of her happiness and to spread the love with you. The moral is worth mentioning ‘let go’, you always keep your thinking hat on. You never told you have a formulae to be child again. Share with me too. 😛 😀

    That’s so sweet <3 little children are the best especially little girls. Sometimes I prefer the company of little children than the adults as they are more innocent and can make you laugh

    Yes. Children are so cute and sweet so we can’t say a no to them. They need someone to talk with and release out what’s their in their mind. Where as on the other hands adults think a 100 times before talking and what to talk and what not. Childhood is so simple. I hope you enjoyed the experience.
    And yea, work can wait. Have a good time. 🙂

    Little kids are like that. They have innocence. They don’t care what world is gonna think about them. As we grow up, that innocence gets lost and we get more aware of the world. This changes the way we talk and think. It was nice of you. Even I would have done the same. 🙂
