“It takes a long time to become young.” – Pablo Picasso

I learned about this phrase a few days ago, and it resonates within me as a wonderful metaphor. It is somehow the quality of the body to age, however, the qualities of the mind allow us to become more playful and curious as we were as a child.

After a quick online research most of the people seem to agree that Pablo meant, that it takes a long time for the artist to achieve the childlike creativity, imagination and expression. If it’s on the internet it must be right.

To achieve such state of mind however, is not a coincidence. For children to be children is natural, for adults to grow young takes conscious effort.

Many people are afraid of the conscious effort and come up with excuses, such as “tiredness” or “busyness”. Yet the same people tend to complain about their life, work etc.

There is a deeper why in our lives. And that why is screaming for expression.

Small efforts, small challenges each day let us to express that deeper why and lets us grow young again.
