One Liner Wednesday – Are We Who We Once Were?

I have been thinking a lot about how we become who we are as adults. Do we lost that child inside? Do the winds of life alter our trajectory? What is the impetus that moves us to who we will become? Inside I still feel that little girl that wandered barefoot through the countryside.

  1. I don’t know for sure what became of the child I was but I like to think she morphed into the adult I became. If she’s still here within me she’s quiet, perhaps subtly helping me.

  2. I spent so long trying to always be ‘grown up’, I lost my childhood around the age of 12. It took until now to be able to occasionally release the inner child in me, once I no longer really cared what others thought about me.
    I wrote about this same topic in April, and you left a comment.

  3. I was just thinking the other day how powerful and vivid certain memories are, even when they happened half a century ago. The woman I am will remember to embrace that girl and tell her it’s going to be okay.

    1. We have traveled many a mile, haven’t we? To stay so closely in touch with our authentic self is a good thing I think. We can either soothe that child, or allow that child to soothe us.

          1. Yes! I agree. Our bodies want to heal. I took a course in reiki years ago, and have learned that positive energy can make a difference in healing.
