7 lessons you can learn from kids that will make you a more successful adult
Venue:台中市南屯區 大業路182號 Mos Burger二樓
Thanks a lot for your attention. Questions:
1. As we grow up, we learn something, and when we gain something, we also lose something else. What do you think about this？What did you gain and lose while growing up？
2. According to the third point of this article, why do we hide our emotions? Except for what is mentioned in this article, do you have any other reasons? If we always hide our emotions, what will be the consequences？How can we face our emotions?
3. Did you have any experiences in trying something before you are fully prepared？What is the result？How do you feel about it?
4. Confucius said, "If three walk together, one can be my teacher."(孔子說三人行必有我師焉) Have you learned anything from your family, friends, and people around you? How have they influenced your life?

Dear Taichung Happiers,
A little lovely creature, the big negotiator. "Linda, honey, ............" https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aFYsJYPye94Every child is the poetry of happy thoughts; it highlights the most beautiful sounding words in English: “Choices and Chances”. “Choices and Chances”! Why don’t we choose to be childlike and create more chances? Receiving numerous international awards, Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho de Souza started up the Paulo Coelho Institute supporting children and the elderly and summarized the stanzas of the happy thoughts as “A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.” Yes. Every child carries countless hope; every child collects and reflects the light of loving, caring, and learning; every child cautions us to slow down to appreciate the amazement in life. Above all, distinctness of every child develops the value of diversity. My dear brothers and sisters, we’ll never be happier than when we’re childlike. Never. Welcome to meet Happiers at a carefree time--join us for a childlike Saturday afternoon.
Every child is an Ode to Simplicity. “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, said the Italian polymath Leonardo Da Vinci (15 April 1452 – 2 May 1519). We are struck by a stunning simplicity when children smile 400 times a day (on average, adults, only 15). Now, please meet these incredible kids to seek their simplicity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmx_7k6ZvXI Besides, we all know that every morning, our big bro Eric Cheng always worships his ancestors and feels happy and grateful to be alive. It’s the simple element of gratitude that shines further. How about Simplicity in action? Quoting French Christian philosopher Blaise Pascal’s enduring insight “I would have written a shorter note, but I did not have the time”, David Friedlander, the managing editor of LifeEdited.com, proposes the space style in simplicity and portrays profound examples of private housing, public library, and co-working space. He titles this lifestyle--we don’t have to own the space to have stuff-- as a habit, the way we conduct ourselves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xns3oeNanfo Simplicity is also about focusing your energy and attention on the most important people in your life. In the film Nine Lives, the daughter teaches her Dad to laugh, to learn more from small things, and to listen to the simple voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jHA97HzhxEFrom “Auguries of Innocence” (By William Blake)
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
Every child is an Ode to Curiosity and Creativity. Are you curious about what children are curious about? (Honestly, their British accent aroused my curiosity first.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZlHvkj4tls Swiss clinical psychologist Jean Piaget (9 August 1896 – 16 September 1980), famously known for pioneering in child development, completely commended the pure childlike curiosity and creativity. “If you want to be creative, stay in part a child, with the creativity and invention that characterizes children before they are deformed by adult society.” Moreover, more play inspires an interest and inclination to keep exploring and exposing new things, and it constantly cultivates curiosity and creativity. http://www.spencerauthor.com/2017/01/want-students-to-be-more-creative-try-adding-more-play.html/ In other words, more play motivates us to be patient with our curiosity--more play allows us to learn fast by making mistakes fast and resetting fast--following our curiosity flies us high enough for the whole view of the Secret Garden where jazz the Jazz the heart flowers and happy flows. Kids’ voice is more than valuable. The playful curiosity we crave most is all about the foods. Find the inspiration through your curiosity, please! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYaBuqKKtBs Every child is an Ode to Beauty. Beauty isn’t only skin deep. Beauty is deeper than we can imagine and expect. Be childlike--feel more beauty before thinking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0REJ-lCGiKU Of course, every child is born for beauty, spiritually and physically. http://www.mdvstyle.com/mini-fashion-bloggers-stylish-kids-on-instagram/ Meanwhile, beauty is as beauty does--kids can always find contentment wherever they are, which advises us to pay attention to the moment, to being present. Kids’ innate ability to appreciate beauty from Arts and Nature echoes Vincent van Gogh’s vivid signature:“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to…The feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.” Oh, likewise, have you thought about the true beauty of dancing, when you asked your Daddy to dance you? https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2016/01/learning-empathy-through-dance/426498/ And, yes, the earlier you start learning empathy, the better. Simultaneously, kids are too innocent to know anything, including being yourself, is impossible. For instance, once upon a kid, whose pink bike painted up the candid spirit to accept more…………………… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyK7LdIKQe8&list=PLvzOwE5lWqhQWsPsW5PQQ5gj5OBewwgUw&index=7Every child is the poetry of happy thoughts—read between the lines. To be childlike is to initiate the inner transformations. To initiate the inner transformations is to spark the fire of passion. To spark the fire of passion is to build a more intimate relationship with authenticity. In addition, the happiest community is a childlike community to embrace interest, impressiveness, and enchantment. The happiest community is a childlike community to always dream about the better. The happiest community is a childlike community to choose like-minded friends. That’s why we turn ourselves into the kids of Happy English Club. Join us. Thanks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVX6agata9kWith Gratitude,
