I have a myriad of thoughts going on this month. I always get nostalgic around my birthday, where I reflect on the past year with what I’ve learned, where I am, if I’m proud of how I’ve grown, what I wish I could be better at, what I hope to accomplish in this NEXT year/etc.
It’s strange getting older. I remember when being born in the 80's didn't seem that long ago. Now I’m living in a world where kids don’t know what cassette tapes are or kids freak out when they hear we didn’t have cell phones in high school…
There are so many things I miss right now. Moments in my life that I wish I could go back and relive. But at the same time I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had and I want to look forward with hope and accomplish the new goals I’ve set for myself.
But just to sum up where my mind is now, I wanted to document a few things:
Of all the places I’ve traveled, this is still where my mind resides:
I miss dancing passionately, but I can still do this:
I miss when I could read without critiquing every word. Stories like this:
I miss being able to eat all the sugar cereals in the world, without curling up in stomach pain afterwards:
I miss days where I could spend hours in my backyard doing nothing but eating popsicles and playing with my imaginary friends. (Did I just admit that?)
And lastly, I miss when I didn’t have any fear. I loved the feeling of knowing I could do anything and not fail. (Something I’m trying to get back)
It’s spring break, so hubby and kids will be home all next week. I’m nearing the end of my current WIP, so hopefully with everyone home I’ll still be able to keep pushing out the words! :) Usually when I get to the end of a project, I rush trying to JUST BE DONE, but I’m taking my time. I want to make sure I do this story RIGHT.
Red. Head. Out.
