When we talk about our inner children, we also have to talk about ourselves as kids. What did we do and what made us become who we are today?
We dug a bit deeper and asked the boys that never stopped playing about their childhood. Watch Olly Wilkins and Ben Deakin telling their story of how they became who they are today.
We browsed through old photo albums and found great moments and memories. We saw little versions of us. We discovered similarities, but also differences. We realized what we lost all the way and what we miss today. It made us think. It's definitely not about getting sentimental, but we see it as a reminder to reflect on what's important in life and what is not.
We are who we were as kids: artists, dreamers, diggers, racers, builders... you name it! But one thing is for sure: your inner child will stay forever. You may hide it, but it is still there. So we asked ourselves:
Inner child of Martin, Brand Manager
Inner child of Fabian, Lead Engineer
Inner child of Ulrike, Graphic Designer
Inner child of Marc, Brand Manager
Inner child of Mario, Lead Design Engineer
Inner child of Moritz, Brand Director
Inner child of Max, Content Lead
Check your albums and find all these little dust-covered gems that are hidden behind cupboard doors. Go find yourself and dive into the carefree moments of childhood.
If you like, share these moments with us. Tag us (@focusbikes) on Instagram and use the hashtag #foryourinnerchild. We would love to see your mini versions and how you are doing today. Best case, we see split pictures of you as a kid and nowadays (on your bike). Maybe you even want to visit the place where the original picture was shot like our Brand Manager Martin did.
Don't forget to hop on your bike and release your inner child. Get back to the attitude of only doing what you enjoy. Just have fun!
