A new start

I haven’t written for a while. A LONG while. The truth is, my journey of learning to be a child has taken a back seat because adult life has quite simply got in the way. Exams, work, the usual life ‘things’. So I’ve decided this will be my final post on this journey.

I won’t say it’s been unsuccessful, I’ve had fun and learnt a lot but quite simply i’ve never been one of those people you look at as a ‘big kid’ and, well, I am an adult after all. This journey has taught me just that and no I’m not going to stop writing but I am going to alter my journey from now on.

It’s time for change. It’s time to stop trying to be a kid because I think this way I’ll find whatever it is I’m looking for because realistically I have no idea. Maybe it’s time to approach things differently, take the adult approach.

So as one blog ends, another one begins. One of new experiences, of thoughts and ideas, dreams and hopes- a journey towards finding whatever it is I’m looking for. A purpose? True happiness? Something else in all this hustle and bustle of life that makes that difference? 

First stop- start planning a book I’ve always dreamed of writing. 

Are children better dreamers than ourselves?

Fulfilling this week’s lesson in learning to be a child has really made me think about the bigger picture of where this is all going. I wanted to do child-like things as a way of learning about myself. But why do I need to learn about myself?

I don’t think I really realised the truth that lay behind this until today and that is that by learning about myself, I hope I can realise what I truly want from my life and what I truly want to achieve.

Because, in all honesty, I don’t have a clue.

Adult life gets so complicated, so busy, that we very rarely step back and question what we’re doing and what we want. This is the most important step in following our dreams, truly and honestly discovering what they are.

No, I don’t know what they are yet. But maybe my inner child does…
