Childhood, such a melodious time it was, wasn’t it?
When I look back on the years that were, I can’t help but smile at some of my own antics and some of my experiences from back then!
I remember the freedom we enjoyed – of choice and hobbies and TIME!
One of the things I miss now as a grown-up, is the time we had to play!
Some of my childhood memories that I am thankful for ( & secretly still do) :
- Jumping through EVERY puddle … chhapaak!
- Dancing in the rain I love the RAIN – to me, there are so many feelings and experiences to be enjoyed when it rains – whether I am sitting inside or outside, or getting wet – It is joyful & a moment to pause and SMILE – for I am ALIVE … & getting wet, or not!
- Day Dreaming – in eastman color!Yep! That’s me, day dreamer… I would imagine scene by scene, dialogues, costume & scenery! sometimes, I would dream the dream all over again, and change the venue or the people in my drama
- ICE-CREAM! I NEVER worried about weight or calories… I just love ice-cream.. and some of my fondest memories are of my mother and me, going to Narula’s restaurant, which was next to some railway tracks and under a flyover (the location made THIS particular Nirula outlet quite the novelty), and having a HOT-CHOCOLATE FUDGE (with Extra Nuts for me) each & chatting… my love for conversations, ideas and discussions comes from this.
- MIRACLES – I saw the impact of alternative methods of Healing on people’s lives – It is one of the experiences from my childhood that I am most thankful for – Being surrounded by Healers, I heard and saw so much with my own eyes & experienced, that it became a cornerstone of who I am, and the work I do in my life. It has helped me have FAITH in people, in treatments, in Healing, and that everyone, every ailment, can get better – Physical, emotional, mental, spiritual! That pain isn’t a way of life! We always have choice to find the treatment to help us!
