Looking back… Day 9.



If there is something I wish I’ll keep until the day I leave this world, it is the gift of keeping in touch with my inner child.

I like being impressed by little things. I like seeing the beauty in little things. I like feeling the magic in little things.

As I said in a previous post, I am not super excited about Holiday Season this year. My Xmas cards sending is an attempt at bringing back the febrility of Christmas in my life. As someone mentionned in my email inbox, it will be time consuming, but I am eager to start sending my cards aways. I hope they will make a difference. We’ll see if they do.

*Fingers crossed*

Today, we went shopping, and there was a Santa Claus village in the mall. I didn’t pay much attention to it, but when we got to Canadian Tire (a Canadian hardware store), there was another Santa Claus, welcoming children in the store….




When I saw him talking to the little girl, something tickled my inner child. IĀ know Santa doesn’t exist, but I felt the urge to go sit by him and tell him what I wanted in 2019. I knew Cheri wouldn’t be comfortable taking a picture of me and Santa, and there were children waiting.

I skipped my turn, although I knew the picture could have been funny.

But I realized all was good. No matter how dark times can be, my inner child isn’t dead.

Is there still magic in your life? How is your inner child doing?

  1. That was a lovely post! I completely agree with you. As old as I get I am still in wonder of many things I see every day. Just decorating the Christmas tree yesterday made me so happy. I look forward to it every year šŸ™‚
    Long live our inner child! šŸ’•

    1. Thank you, Christine šŸ™‚ Long live indeed! As long as this little voice will speak up from time to time and shake me out of my daily adulting, I know I’ll be able to go on, no matter how depressing the world can be šŸ™‚

  2. I sat on Santa’s lap and asked him to just spread the joy of life around this Christmas…that is all I want. How I wish more “adults” would let their inner children out to play and simply enjoy the fact they are alive.

    1. šŸ™‚ I wish you could post a picture of you on Santa’s lap…

      Oh, dang! It just happened again… You gave me an idea… and it would probably flop, but I just think it would be soooo funny. I am really really tempted to dare people to have their picture taken with a Santa and post it… I’d love to have a collection of “me with Santa” pictures from bloggers. And this time of year, everyone goes to the mall at least once!

      I’ll think about this šŸ˜›


    1. I’ll most probably go back to this mall before Christmas… If I do, I’ll try to have my picture taken with him… No promise, but I’ll try šŸ˜‰ (and you know I usually get out of my comfort zone to entertain you, dear Cheryl! LOL)
