Just a short little post a decided to do. This song put me in the mood.
I've been quite busy these past few months. Sometimes, I feel like I barely have time to breathe. Time is passing at such a rapid rate that I haven't even settled on the notion that Christmas is soon approaching. And every time I find some time to read, or to blog, my mind is always a little elsewhere, thinking about other works, other events that are soon coming in my way.
I've always been excited to grow up. To be independent, eat what I want, buy what I want. But now, I'm not so sure anymore. Sometimes, I miss those days when I was a child, when I used to play in the yard, or just cuddle with my stuffed animals. When homework was just naming the word to go along with the image, when school was like an endless recess with a nap as a bonus.
I long for those days, all right. Yet I know that I cannot return to them. I can only go forward, towards the path that I will build myself. I know that my childhood has basically vanished, but I do hope that its spirit will never fade away. I hope that its spirit will help support me through the rough times that could come, and remind me that my childhood may be behind me, but it will always be with me, in my heart.
I hope that it will be that way for you too.
