When I grow up I want to be a ?
Isn't life funny when we look back on our younger days and observe the stages life has brought us through? As if I were in a theater where my performances took place, and step by step the platforms changed.
I was a young unruley haired girl full of pie in the sky aspirations and dreams. Every now and then it's refreshing to visit all the significant changes that occured, and the stages I would go through that eventually shaped who I am and where I was going.
The "I can't wait to grow up and be a Movie Star! Or is it an Airline Stewardess? Maybe a Hairdresser who gets to play with hair and make up! Yea that will be so much fun!" I think I had a new aspiration for each new season! The one thing I knew I wanted and the part of me that would never change would be to have FUN! My heart had to be in my choice or it wasn't going to happen and I was never going to be NEGATIVE like the grown ups! Yep I was always a dreamer who fondly recalls Girly gushes of excitement, sadness, or even disappointment that would happen, yet with each cycle of change I found myself reshaping and growing... it's called life.
The childlike eyes that would find a speck of light that would be a big enough window to let my imagination roam and find something to do, or create. It's like watching my grandchildren who look for something to play with and the "let's pretend game" with our imaginations and acting skills come alive.
Guess what? After some HARD KNOCKS that little girl can loose much of her pie in the sky optomism and her outlook can change into one of "You got to be kidding me!" The glass is half empty!
Thats the alarm buzzing, yet we can get all caught up in hitting snooze button and staying in that negative stupor!
Time to regroup. Time to find that speck of light in the window that is still there! Time to have the fun you forgot to have! Time to be creative and positive!
I miss my active rain friends and taking my travel classes has been such an exciting adventure for me that I just don't know how I can decribe the joy I truly feel other than to say I feel like a kid again! A new adventure and a new horizon!
I am a creative person who needs to create or see God's creation. Either way that's when I felt the most productive and happy.
I wanted to touch base with my friends on active rain and write a short blog letting you all know that I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and I'll be popping in a bit more frequent after my finals for my travel agent position.
