Feel Like A Child
In my opinion we can learn more from children than the best guru or enlightened master can teach us. Children, when they are young, naturally live in the now, in the moment. This is a great teaching. It will keep you young and alert. If you stop for a moment and are willing to be open, a piece of that natural playfulness and awareness will be transmitted to you; changing you forever. Changing your priorities and teaching you what is really important and what is not:
Feel Like a Child, Be a Child

I totally agree.
Funnily enough I just posted a message to the same effect on another thread before I saw this one.
But yes. I have a 9 year old nephew and every time I see him he reminds me what I felt like at his age, and what was important to me back then. The funny thing is, if I really think about it honestly, nothing's changed and the same things are still what's important to me now, it's just that like most adults I tend to get so caught up in the various pressures of modern life that I can easily forget to just relax and smell the roses (literally and figuratively)!
Anyway I must have finally learnt something from him that has stuck with me because I have handed in my notice at work and will be taking 6 months off to just relax, have fun, enjoy time with family and friends, and, well, smell the roses!
I wonder what the world would be like if everyone did that all the time?
