An adult but still a kid at heart


I took a Mental Age test the other day and it resulted me in the category of around 9 years!! Well, this may sound shocking but I kinda actually enjoy being myself. Not that I am not an adult or I don’t understand being one, but it’s completely so cool to have a kid’s heart. Being a kid has its own pros and cons but at least your heart gets to be carefree while your mind is busy being an adult. And I’ve seen some people who – regardless of their age maintain their carefree attitude, and their happy go lucky personality. Even though they are legally adults, they’re still kids at heart. They are so innocent and behave like a child, just makes me wonder if it’s a child in an adult’s costume. Can’t even say it for myself, I still fit in a kid’s section!  Anyways, Here are the signs that proves you are an adult but still a kid at heart.

  • You become excited by small things.

Childhood is something we all have enjoyed the most and that time has been the most cherished of all. As kids, we wanted to grow up and do all that our parents or elders would do. Be it start going to college or driving the car or just start earning. But now that we are adults, all we want to do is go back down the memory lane and become a child again.

“Growing old is mandatory but growing up is an option.”

So, indulge in the little happiness of life, and watch everything fall into place.
