And while I am getting rid of much stuff that has accumulated, I am finding some real treasures. Like this picture of young me in a tree. I was such a tomboy, climbing trees, digging in the dirt and collecting bugs of all kind.
It's only natural, but still I want to recapture some of that energy I had when I was young (so much energy in fact, that I hardly needed any sleep to the great exhaustion of my poor parents...).
Every day was so full of fun things to be discovered, new games to play, new stories to imagine, new friends to be made, and new trees to climb.
I have decided that today I am going look at my world with those young and eager eyes again and try to find the magic that is surely there...
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
