What Do You Miss?


Day 12 - What Do You Miss?


I was going to talk about my dad on this post. He died so many years ago now and I still miss him so much. It is a subject very near to my heart however and is something I don’t really want to use for a blog challenge. I’ll choose something else.

I miss that time in your childhood when you believed in magic and fairies and that Narnia wasn’t just in a book, it was a real place. Before the real world collides with you and you have to “grow up”; before cynicism and skepticism enter the equation.

I always believed in magic when I was a child and would have loved to have been part of the generation growing up with Harry Potter. I loved the books as an adult and would have been completely obsessed as a little girl.

When you believe in magic you also believe that anything is possible. I wanted to be a model, bless me. At that time in your life no one tells you that you are too fat, too short, not pretty enough etc etc. That is the time in your life that people say “Of course you can be!”

I really miss that innocence. I may still be that girl who is lost inside her own head a lot of the time, but at least back then I believed in magic. That part of me has grown up now.

But you know what? I still believe in fairies ;)

  2. Childhood innocence - when anything was possible - well said! I can't help but think that (if possible) parents should allow their children to BE children for as long as they can. However, I'm not too sure how practical that is! x x

    1. We are into the Ipad generation now so I don't really know how connected children are to technology and how far away from fairies in the garden. I'm not a child person so don't know! x

  4. Love this one :-) I was the same, I loved magic and mysthical things. And I still do! I have all Harry Potter books in German and English! I love the films and Narnia and Lord of the rings. Christmas time, my favourite movie ist still Santa Clause :-) When I was little I used to believe that smurfs actually existed :D
