This weeks Gallery theme is ‘A Younger Me‘ now its been a while since I last joined in but this theme is so resonating with me at the moment.
In my head I am still a teen, however when I look into my daughters eyes I become wizened and shrink to a wrinkly before my own eyes, never mind hers!
When I had Beth in 2001 aged 21 I was all knowing and all mocking with each person that told me ‘time will fly’ .. what did they know after all??
13 years later my thoughts on this subject have done a complete about turn. The weeks and months seem to pass by at hyper speed and my grasp at time some days seems to run like sand through my fingers ..
Although feeling like a teen in my head, looking at my younger self I do feel sorry for her, yet to have any real idea of life, although maybe its good to have not been tainted at that stage. I don’t envy the choices she has yet to make or the situations she has yet to face.
I maybe turning 35 this year but beyond the encroaching wrinkles and the 6 extra stone I would never wish my time over.
I love my lot along with my past good and bad, the choices I then went onto make have all made me the person I am today and for that I will always be thankful!
