I Go Back...
"Rise in the morning with the spirit you had known in your childhood. That spirit of eagerness and adventure and certainty."
Yesterday was so special to me. I felt like a six-year-old all over again. The day started out with a college class with a wonderful teacher. He read to us, showed us Dr. Seuss magic tricks, and told us many stories. He made me feel young again and excited to learn. It has been a very long time since I have had this feeling.
My day then continued with being called off work. Even though I don't get paid, I am ecstatic to get a day off. I came home from school and had nothing to do. Just like I used to experience when I was a child. Nothing to do, nowhere to go.
Later on around five, my boyfriend and I went to dinner and a movie! We ate at Logan's and then watched Beauty and the Beast in 3D. Oh how I loved that movie when I was a child. Watching it instantly took me back in my rocking chair, six years old, curled up with my blankies, enjoying a Disney classic.
Yesterday was perfect. It is so nice to pretend to be a child again. Such a breath of fresh air.
