I have thought this so often and especially nearing Christmas what an absolute magical time it was to be a child. Life was a learning experience and unfortunately we soon discover all the hardships and pain associated with growing older. A trip down memory lane...beautifully written!
Ooof! Ain't that the truth? Nothing like that childlike innocence and the genuine love and curiosity that were once so strongly apart of our lives. Unfortunately so much of that can be lost in growing up. We are conditioned from day one to think a certain way, act a certain way, feel a certain way. Kind of puts a damper on the whole thing. However, bringing that inner child back as an adult and welcoming all of that sparkly, beautiful energy back into our lives can be so amazing and healing :) Anyway. I'll stop rambling. This is such a great write, packed with a powerful punch at the end there, and really provokes some deep thinking back to those good ol' days! Well done!!
It is so wonderful that as kids we are all innocent but time and people changes us alot unfortunately many of us go through things that change our belief and our wonder and not always for the better either.. A lot of fold for thought here.
