How Well Do You Know Your Inner Child?

Apr 19, 2008
The term "inner child" applies to our emotional body. Psychologist Carl Jung called it the "divine child", spiritual leader Emmet Fox called it the "wonder child" and I call it my reason for not having to act grownup all the time.

We all have an inner child; we just talk about it differently. Pablo Picasso said, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up". Dr. Seuss said, "Adults are obsolete children" and Woody Harrelson said, "A grownup is a child with layers on". I think Woody Harrelson's and my inner children could play well together.

To get to better know my inner girl I took an online test to find out how old she is. There were eight, multiple-choice questions, ranging from what is your favorite pet to what do you want to be when you grow up. I answered the questions, clicked on submit and found out my inner girl is sixteen. This means I'm two years away from not having an inner girl or I'm two years away from having one's that's old enough to know better.

Having found out how old my inner girl is, I took another online test to find out how she feels. This time there were five, multiple-choice questions, ranging from why I'm like a child to what is my favorite game. I answered the questions, clicked on submit and found out she's happy. Unfortunately, the test said that adult me thought life was simple and that I didn't worry - which worried me because I do worry - but maybe inner children are like other children and don't listen to adults.

I hope spare the rod and spoil the child doesn't apply to inner children. If they survive the trip to adulthood and all the "are-we-there-yet's" along the way, they deserve to be spoiled - and Las Vegas is just the place to do it.

Las Vegas is Disneyland for adults. Hotels with names like New York-New York, Paris and Rio put the fan in fantasy. With no clocks in the casinos, it's no time like the present all the time. Add to that all-you-can-eat buffets, where desserts outnumber green vegetables ten to one and shows that end at ten or one and you have a 24/7 party. In Las Vegas your inner child can be born again without you getting a year older.
