Tending to your inner child

It’s been 18 weeks now since the world has turned upside down. As the days and weeks pass, and as they all seem to blur together, we are seeing more of our world open. Slowly we are getting back to some normality.

A few weeks ago, I saw a picture posted on Instagram. It was of the author’s younger self that radiated joy. The caption read, “Remember her? She is still there inside you… go get her.”

It was fun reading the responses from people reminiscing about their fun, loving childhood that they felt was long gone. I had to do some digging…but I found a picture. My brother is in it – I’m about seven he is about four. It is Christmas time at my grandparent’s house. We had our own table…remember the kiddie table? There was so much joy in that picture. Which led to more joy in the form of memories – remembering the Christmases of years gone by.
