Sometimes when nobody is home I put on my favorite flowy dress, push play, and jump on the bed like I am nine years old again. As if it is the last day of my life. The dress gets caught between my legs & I have to say, that’s my favorite part. As I fall in a twisted cloud of my duvet I suddenly stop just to feel my heart beating. I’m usually out of breathe after doing this a couple times, but I have the biggest damn smile you’ve ever seen.
The best part is that I’ve never felt more alive then that moment in time. I like to remind myself that I will never be this young again, and that to truly live, I need to jump on the bed in my favorite summer dress on every cold day possible. I’ll do this until I can’t anymore. I adore the things that bring the little girl in me out. I’m not against growing up, I just don’t want to get old.
I was like, good gracious ass bodacious. So take it off like your home alone, you know dancin in front your mirror while you’re on the phone.
Checkin’ your reflection and tellin’ your best friend, Like girl, I think my butt gettin’ big
lol great post ! it reminded me of two Rumi Quotes
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
“Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”
So many times we are scared to do something crazy and silly just because its fun and we are supposed to be older and wiser :-)
Those quotes are perfect for this – I can’t believe I’ve never heard his quotes. Thanks for sharing:)
I love this! I must confess…I do the same thing! :)
It feels so good! I guess I realized I can’t be ashamed for something that makes me so happy.
What a gorgeous photo to capture your blog post! :)
Thank you! I love that shot – The patterns are perfect
I absolutely LOVE this post. Possibly because I do silly little things like this. Lately I have noticed that I still do a lot of things I did when I was little. I still go on swings as much as I used to, I still jump on beds like I used to, I still sit backwards on the couch to stare out the window of my house, I still dress up goofy and play pretend, I still sing and dance at the top of my lungs, I love to jump and twirl around in circles, if you take me to the grocery store and let me pick out my favorite kind of ice cream I still jump up and down in excitement, I might even laugh more than I used to. “I’ll do this until I can’t anymore. I adore the things that bring the little girl in me out. I’m not against growing up, I just don’t want to get old.” So very true, I love it!
I am typically pretty mature but I do act like a child sometimes. It is crazy how much more joy it brings to my life being just a little bit more childlike! Thank you for putting the biggest smile on my face!!! =]
I love swinging as well, super high. I love that you do those things, have to stay young inside!! I’m glad this made you smile, that’s my goal:)
Fabulous post: Let go OFTEN. Good for you.
Thank you:) It helps a lot
I think one of the most important things about living is not forgetting the preciousness of our inner-child. Your routine is a fantastic way to do that, and how fuuuuun!!
