As a kid the world was at my finger tips. Literally. In my mind I could do whatever I wanted and be whatever I wanted. If not in real life but in my pretend world. I could conquer the world before actually heading out to school and that was after my mom would dress me in bed because I didn't want to wake up.

The world is still at my finger tip but its just not as clear as it was back then. Pretending isn't something I've done in years. Knowing the truth about the world we live in makes that hard to do. What can you pretend about in a world where pretending isn't practical. Where your pretend world and your real world don't align. Actually they're not even in the same time zone.

It's times like that where I miss pretending to be avoiding the lava by jumping on all the furniture and hanging onto the side of our bunk bed. I miss tossing back the balloon and having to throw myself on the ground just so it wouldn't touch the ground. I miss the forts that were built and held together by big clips with red rubbing things on the end. I miss that time in my life were it was so easy to lose myself in my own mind of childish randomness.

Yes I miss all those things and so much more but as much as I miss them I know those moments and memories are not gone. I may not experience those things anymore but they are still with me. I hold those memories with me everyday. And some day either it be with my own kids or nieces and nephews I will experience them again.

Until them I'm going to continue to hold on to child in me. That kid I was. Shit she was pretty great if you ask me.

  1. I love this post! I think one of the hardest things about growing up is being able to keep that "I can do whatever I want" attitude in mind.
