If you haven’t had a lot of fun in your life lately, it can be an indicator that you have been ignoring your inner child. Your inner child is your CEO of fun!
The first step is to just still yourself and ask your inner child what they need from you. It could be that they’ve been desperate for your love, care, and understanding. Let them know you are there for them and meet their emotional needs first.
Once you feel you have acknowledged and provided them with what they need, invite them out for a date with you. Ask them what they’d like to do and what would bring them joy. You might be surprised to discover that something as simple as going for an ice cream or a walk is all they want, but that ice cream or walk will be a much more wonderful experience than normal because you will be present with them and they will be present with you.
When you connect with your inner child and make them an integral part of your day to day life, much healing can occur. You will feel more comfortable because your abandonment wounds will no longer be in a triggered state. You will feel more complete. You will find it easier to be light and joyful and to notice the wonder and magic that exists all around you. It is a beautiful act of self love that can only positively affect all aspects of you.
