There are times when I wish I could be a kid again. To have a seemingly simpler life. All of the excitement and disappointment over the smallest things. But I'm sure when I was that age, I did nothing but wish away my youth and there are times that I do that now (27 years is not that long...).But life is hard!It's hard to think about dreams for the future and lessons from the past, when you're trying to stay 'present' and get through the day-to-day of life.As one wise lady said, "Life just sort of happens."very true.I hope some day I can look back on this blog, random scribblings and notes and realize that I knew more than I thought. That I was more okay than I thought. That as life happened...I lived it the best I could.** love fiercly. love freely.remember compassion.
