What was I like as a child?

I’m not sure that I’m qualified to say what I was like as a child.

I think I was a pretty awesome little kid.

Maybe I was a tiny bit stubborn and potentially had anger issues but I know for a fact that I was hilarious and entertaining.

My view of me as a child is probably slightly skewed as I just remember the nice, crazy fun parts. Endless summers, strawberries, sticky buns, mess and laughter.

I don’t ever remember thinking,

“What am I like?”

“What is this life?”

“Why am I mixing talcum powder and cucumber in this pestle and mortar?”

“What is a pestle and mortar and why do we have one?”

I just was…and I just did what felt right in my head.

And yes, I really did mix cucumber and talc in a pestle and mortar. I don’t know why but isn’t that the point of childhood? Not knowing why and not even realising that there might be a why.

You just did what you thought was best, you were living by instinct.

Then the world goes and fills your head with bulls**t about what you should be doing, what you should be wearing, blah, blah, blah…

No! Don’t listen to it!

I loved being a child!

So free and fun and exciting. Every little thing is so exciting and new.

Let’s try looking at the world through a child’s eyes. Be fascinated by anything and everything. Don’t be afraid to be ecstatic. Jump around, smile, laugh uncontrollably!
