Who doesn't love Mickey Mouse? It's interesting that it was apart of my childhood, and now I'm starting to grow up.
I love how certain things and smells can remind you of past times in your life. I love when I smell a certain perfume and instantly can flashback to when I was in middle school trying to impress boys at the mall (haha). Sometimes, it's nice being on you're own and feeling independent, but sometimes, you miss the days when you were eight, and your only concern was when the next disney channel movie was coming on. But, my spirit hasn't changed, just my responsibilities have. So maybe I'm not growing up after all just growing older.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: “I don’t want to be little again. But at the same time I do. I want to be me like I was then, and me as I am now, and me like I’ll be in the future. I want to be me and nothing but me. I want to be crazy as the moon, wild as the wind and still as the earth. I want to be every single thing it’s possible to be. I’m growing and I don’t know how to grow. I’m living but I haven’t started living yet. Sometimes I simply disappear from myself. Sometimes it’s like I’m not here in the world at all and I simply don’t exist. Sometimes I can hardly think. My head just drifts, and the visions that come seem so vivid.”
I love love love this quote (I just love quotes a lot sorry guys). It shows the struggle of wanting to grow up but not wanting to change. And, the fear of losing one's old self when growing up. Deep stuff, man.
