I miss the innocence of childhood. Tonight I went to the gym after school and was having a shower afterwards and heard two little girls who were in the two shower cubicles next to me talking. They would have been 7 or maybe 8 and one says to the other: “guess what?” and the other obviously asks what and she says “I’m really excited for tonight. Sometimes, just sometimes Mum lets me use her perfume and it smells really nice. Maybe she will let you use some too.”
It was really, really lovely to hear some happiness and excitement come from someone. Instead of all of the other negative and degrading things that we mostly hear these days. Disease, illness, poverty, accidents, violence, death. We really do think too much about the negative and not the positive things that, if we take the time to notice, do occur.
I miss thinking that things like fairy tales, santa and the easter bunny actually existed. Sometimes, the truth is, reality can be a very very horrible thing. It’s up to us to make life want we want it and live it the way we want, otherwise it’s never going to happen.
