I don't know about you, but I grew up in a house where you did exactly what the generation before you did without thinking. You graduated from high school, got married and kept an immaculate house...you had children, donned an apron as you tossed a roast in the oven on Sunday before you went to church...and you sewed pretty dresses for your daughters. Somehow though for me something felt amiss. There was a whole chunk of me that was missing.....my youth.
I was married at 19 and a Mom at 20 and never realized that there was a life beyond what I had experienced as a child growing up, so I just went with it. I went from my parents house to my husband's house without the oppurtunity to experience life and never really knowing the difference.
As the years went by there was the inevitable divorce and many life challenges that naturally went along with that part of my life story. A lot of sadness and yet so much joy as my amazing children who in each of their unique ways showed me so many different ways to embrace my inner child by observing how they have embraced their new lives as they left the nest.
That quirky kid who really never had a chance to be a kid....still embraces the always present childhood in every generation. So, in saying this, I am going to embrace and smile on this video each and every day on facebook this year....and you can too if you want too :-)
Each one of us has either learned and or taught a child to ride a bike...and what a magical moment it is/was when we did it...life lesson....you CAN do it! Me...I choose to embrace life and new experiences. :-)
