We're little for so long, or so it seems at the time, that we were desperately awaiting the day when we're no longer considered little. We held on to the thought that one day we'll be older and free do what we please, whenever we please. Our daydreams were filled with when we are older scenarios. They probably revolved around a boy being in our life, living alone, getting married, traveling, having a family, or all the cool things we'd get to do. Admit it, I'm not the only one who had those daydreams. 

Those daydreams were ones of a little girl so ready to be no longer little. A girl so excited to live in a world where she calls the shots. Well good news is that now we're no longer considered that little girl. Bad news is it doesn't feel much different. Yes were older. Yes we're no longer the size of that little girl. But we still have her heart, her daydreams, her worries. She's still inside of us hiding. 

Just the thought that some where inside of me, is that little girl I once was, is weird. I always figured I'd outgrow her. Now I know that was wishful thinking. I may be older but I still find myself fearing the same things she feared, and dreaming her daydreams. We all have her inside of us. 

I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing. All I know is, that's a little girl that I want to protect. I don't want her to see the things I have. To feel the things that I've felt. Or to be hurt by the things that have hurt me. She doesn't deserve that. She deserves so much more. 

I want to be the person she needed back then. The person I needed back then. I want to be a person she'd be proud of.

  2. Great post. It's so strange looking back thinking that by now we would have it all figured out. I honestly feel the same as I did when I was younger!

  5. This is a lovely post. I'm not sure how much of the little girl I used to be is still there as I feel like I've grown so much, particularly in the past couple of years. That being said, I'm sure she's still there with a few of the same insecurities, hopes and dreams as I have now. Although, I wish I could tell her that the desire to go shopping, buy your the food you want and cook your own meals isn't all that she thinks it will be! Haha.

    1. She's definitely in there somewhere hiding. I'm sure she's proud of how much you've grown as well. Ha! I hear you. It sounds wonderful to be all grown up and doing things for yourself but little does she know what it comes with.
