    I've never felt my age

    and believe it or not I still think the same thoughts since I was 4.I also love the 60s era and especially the 20s era when the Flappers were born to revolutionize ♡

    I'm Lost, Wayfaring...

    Most days I feel like my feet do not even belong on the ground under me. Since I was a little girl, I have seen things so differently through these eyes. Unable to relay fully sometimes with those around me. Casting out shallowness and modern ideas. Almost forcing myself into...

    A Place Called Stop

    Do you ever think about time? About how the greater the velocity the slower time passes and the lower the velocity the faster time passes? This gets me wondering how fast I am going. At this latitude I am heading East with a rotational velocity of several hundred miles an hour...

    I'm a kid at heart. I like to be goofy/silly

    and sometimes mischievous. I'm random and have a good sense of humour. I like taking walks and exercising. I'm a free spirit. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs and I'm not into parties. I'm old fashioned. I prefer the country life. I want to live in a cottage, or on a farm or...

    I'm an old soul. I've very youthful in behavior

    but many days I feel as though I've already been there, done that, in life. For years I sought, "the real" as I didn't think anything in this life was actual, but rather figments of our own imagination. But I'm still here, as I'm still very young by Earth time. I'm also a very...

    The Lonely Path Of Enlightenment

    My Grandma used to tell me all the time, 'You have an old soul." I had a vague sense of what she meant, but not enough to grasp the significance of her words. Now, I have a deeper understanding of the phrase, and this is how my "old soul" has manifested itself during this life...

    My family always told me I was an old soul

    and now I know why. I never related to people my age. Mentally I feel way older than I am now. I prefer older things than modern things.

    Here's the thing..if you feel you are an old

    One Of The Most Flattering Compliments I Have Ever Received.

    I have always felt (even from a very young age) that I was an old soul, or lived a rough past life, and was somehow in tune with the wisdom of life. Not that I knew all things wisdom, that often is associated with age and experience, but I felt I had a real grasp of what wisdom...

    Know One When I See One

    In their art, music, mathematics...in the myriad ways old souls manifest in our lives, the shock of recognition always astounds me. I've been cogitating about old souls, and came up with a common denominator: autonomy of thought. We're kinda feral.

    that a friend of mine has labeled me an old soul, but as long as I can remember, I've had a curious mind. I had a friend once who called it a seeking mind - the ability to be open to other ideas and spiritualities. My favorite summary of the old soul is the constant search for...
