We Are The Reckless. We Are The Wild Youth.

I miss being a little girl.

I miss waking up early on Saturday mornings just to watch cartoons.

I miss having my mother brush my hair every morning before school.

I miss being called "Little Bird".

I miss staying out until sunset with the other kids in my neighborhood.

I miss being pushed on the swings at the park down the street.

I miss trying so hard to color in the lines of my various coloring books.

I miss knowing the words to every single Disney song.

I miss having sleepovers with my best friend who lived right next door.

I miss running around the playground at school.

I miss snuggling with all of my stuffed animals.

I miss feeling proud of myself when I could finally reach the top cabinet in the kitchen.

I miss my friends from preschool, kindergarten, elementary school, and middle school.

I miss the big picture books.

I miss nap time.

I miss running after the ice cream truck.

I miss learning how to ride a bike.

I miss exploring the dense woods with my guy friends during my tomboy days.

I miss building forts out of the biggest sticks my friends and I would find on the forest floor.

I miss being a Girl Scout.

I miss not having to worry about finances, college, work, and relationships.

I miss not having to worry about how I look throughout the day.

I miss not having a care in the world.

I miss the wonder.

I miss the innocence.

I miss the easiness of it all.

I miss the beauty of childhood.

I miss the love.

I miss having the wildest imagination and the most fantastic dreams, those of which I believed could have been real.

I miss my reckless, wild youth.

nostalgia is a thing that all human beings can relate to, regardless of ethnicity, nationality, race, gender, anything. i think that is why it brings humans to such a warm fuzzy place. i love to recant my own childhood. im lucky, as are you. not having a care in the world is something that so many people take for granted. so its nice to see someone who is just relishing in their own past simplicities. right on.

Growing up is hard and is an irreversible process. We have to leave behind a lot of things, things got tougher and sometimes those difficulties are a burden that lead us to depression and wanting things to come back, but they never will. Sometimes it's worst when we didn't have those moments when we were younger, we wish we had the life we never had. We don't remember much from the past due to how messy it was. But I know how you feel.... Seems to me that you are looking back because you don't like the present moment, hope things get better for you

As long as we don't give up and don't let our problems swallow we whole. As I said, sometimes I miss the things I never had, my childhood was never really there. I'm trying to use what I've learned and my gifts to make something better from the life I have. Sometimes it just feels better to just say what's on our mind, isn't it? I like listening to other people, so feel free to share your experiences if you will :)
