I wish someone told me

      3 Comments on I wish someone told me


Oh to be young, sights many a person watching the dirt stained child frolic on wet, grass or splash through muddy puddles. Indeed, to be young is a great experience.Β The greatest asset of youth is perhaps a glorious sense of freedom from the heavy responsibilities of life. The vision of youth is fresh. It is difficult to recapture at a later age that innocent curiosity about everything that marks the days of youth. If the joys of life have rare intensity in youth, the sorrows appear intense. The delight of licking ice cream is matched at the other end of the spectrum by the disgust of having to eat spinach under the watchful eyes of mother.Β The process of growing up is a painful as it is joyful. From the vantage point of maturity, you regret the fading away of innocent joys and intensity and
excitement of experience.

    Lovely capture of the joys of being young and carefree when the vision is not so restrained by the scpeticism of maturity that comes with growing up

    You have very nicely captured the difference between childhood, youth and growing up. Every phase has its own charm but we surely miss childhood when we grow up and want to grow up when we are kids!
