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.
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. I 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?
