It's okay to be childish sometimes

With The Lego Batman Movie hitting the big screen I think this is the perfect time to remind ourselves that it's okay to be a little childish sometimes.

Everyone loves Lego
There's nothing wrong with embracing your inner kid and enjoying something not intended for grownups. We all need to experience a bit of nostalgia once in a while and take some time to escape the stresses of adult life.

As someone who is a fan of geeky films, TV shows, games and more, I often get bombarded with the questions: "isn't that a bit childish?" or "isn't that for kids?" This is something that really frustrates me because it is a sign that people take themselves too seriously in life. If you think there's something wrong with having bit of fun and enjoying something youthful and silly, then I think there's something wrong with you. Adult life is full of serious decisions and tedious responsibilities, something even the most organised people get overwhelmed with at times. We all deserve to treat ourselves to a little escapism and I think watching kids movies can be a great way of doing so.

I saw The Lego Batman Movie at the weekend with my boyfriend and we had a great time. I honestly would really recommend this film if you need some time off to have fun, as it was a really entertaining film to watch. I loved the original Lego movie and this was a fantastic sequel that encompassed a huge cast of everyone’s favourite heroes and villains – there was even a Lego Dalek!

When we were at the cinema it didn't matter that most of the audience was made up of families with young children, we didn't care what anyone thought because we were happy enjoying the film. I think it's always vital to relax, take time out to have fun and most importantly to not worry about what other people may think. Life is full of difficulties, so why not spend your free time enjoying being a little bit childish? You know you want to!

Do you agree with me? I would love to hear your thoughts, so let me know what you think in the comments.
