Magic is something we understand as children.
A world of possibilities,
unlike any other.
Full of big dreams and twinkling stars, all within our reach.
All right at our fingertips.
A bolt like lightning in the sky.
When the only thing that mattered was being a kid and having fun.
It’s a shame we let life dim our lights as adults.
Leave a little glitter everywhere you go.
A little glistening never hurt anyone’s soul.
Sparkle- it doesn’t come with any age restrictions.
Be the unicorn this world needs.
Side note: So often we hear, “aren’t you a little too old for that?” We have these constraints put on ages- at [this age] you should be doing this, wearing this, saying this…who decided these things? As we approach adulthood, we silence our inner child at times. When really we should be embracing our childish moments. We should continue to dream without worry or fear of not being successful. and just continue to work hard at our goals and dreams. We should be mesmerized by the stars above, by the simple things like when you hear your old favorite song, or smell a scent that takes you back.
Nostalgia can be a tricky thing. We can get caught up in it, and forget to notice to present and the new journeys ahead. We idealize our pasts and believe our best days have been put behind us. I loved my childhood, I have many fond memories of growing up in the 90’s/00’s. But it wasn’t perfect, nothing ever is. Just like now isn’t perfect. But I’m approaching 30 [hey now, your only 27 girl, hush now! ;)] and they say that’s your prime. So cheers to that.
Believe in the magic, embrace your inner sparkle. Shine it for the world to see. Just because we are growing up and gaining more life responsibilities, does not mean we have to forget to laugh loud at silly jokes, play games, rock creative colorful outfits, or dance around to songs from decades past.
Magic comes in all shapes and forms, open your mind to it. Dream Big. And never stop.
