I miss when life used to be simple.....

Doesn't everyone?

....when I was a little girl, and the world was bright and big and beautiful and full of opportunity. 
I still see the world that way. I still want to see the world that way. 

Deep down, I am still a little girl, 
spinning around in a sundress in the middle of a field. 

I am still chasing dreams like butterflies.
                 I am still cloud-watching
and daydreaming about what amazing gifts the future holds for me 
and trying to grasp the secrets of the past.

Deep down, I know that life is full of promise.

I know that there is hope. 

 Sometimes, however, it is incredibly easy to become buried in a seemingly hopeless situation. 
I feel like complication has snuck up on me, and I don't welcome it. 

I want simple beauty. I want hope.
I will fight for it.


  1. A lot of times i always wonder how things were so simple when I was younger, I think lots of people feel this way. Great post.

  2. Thank you!!! I figured a lot of people could relate to this, and I really needed to let out some emotion.

    I think that while life gets more and more complicated the older we get, it also becomes more and more incredible too!!!
