Some say that the secret to a happy life is simply staying young forever, but of course, this isn’t possible, and each and every one of us must grow up and become a responsible person that contributes to society. However, this doesn’t mean that we should ignore the little kid within us, rather that we need to know when its okay to “let him/her out” and enjoy the world in the best way possible. Does the child inside of you have a voice, or have you forgotten it long ago in a hidden area in your heart? Answer the 12 questions in the next test and find out if the child within you is still alive...

Your inner child is alive and kicking!
It’s likely that someone who has known you well since you were young would say that you haven’t changed at all and that you remain energetic, funny and spontaneous just as you were in your youth. This doesn’t mean you’re immature, but it certainly means that you aren’t letting the adult lifestyle prevent you from enjoying and doing what you really want. It may be that sometimes your approach to life puts other people in unpleasant situations, either because you aren’t punctual or because your humor offends them, but those who really know you know that this is just who you are and they don’t have to take anything you say to heart.
Your inner child is alive, but it’s grown a bit older
You have a child, or rather a teen, who still shows their face from time to time when they are allowed to do so. You still enjoy going to concerts and are happy to break out of routine when possible, but you won’t abandon your responsibilities, such as work or your own kids, for these thrills. Your inner child just grew up with you, re-edited their priorities and learned how to be more responsible to live a good life. You can certainly say that you have a balanced soul!
Your inner child is hiding deep inside you
When was the last time you did something new or even just laughed with all your heart? If it's been a while, it's time to look in your heart for the child hiding within, because it seems you haven’t let them out in quite some time. This weekend, choose to do something fun and unconventional that you've been wanting to do for a long time but didn’t have time for it. It will help awaken your sleeping child and give them a little more room in your life. Allow yourself to enjoy life as a child would - this isn’t a crime, rather it’s a must to living a truly happy life.
