"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver
A Child Once Is A Child Forever
They say that you should work as hard as you play, but it seems that once we hit a certain age we try so hard not to be embarrassed that we forget to have fun. I have concluded this is why I usually end up on a Mary-Go-Round by myself whenever I go out with friends. I can see in their eyes that they want to be on it too, but they are all too 'suave' to join me in my fun. You can call me childish, immature and maybe even mentally disturbed, but I'm the girl smiling and having a nice time while you stand at the corner with puckered lips, phone in hand, gazing deeply into the distance. To be fair, at my age, I should probably be the latter, but I know that deep in my heart there is child surrounded my all this self inflicted maturity that I try to maintain on weekdays. Will you unleash your inner child?
