Oh um, sigh....

A radio show helped me stroll down memory lane this morning. They played the theme songs to classics from them days: The Gummy Bears tune, the Duck Tales song, the Heman song and even the Knightrider theme! I am sure the guys sitting in the bakkie* in front of me, thought me a tad insane smiling the way I did!

But it reminded me of time that was much more simple, when you though being an adult was easy, when the hardest decision was whether to play with a doll or a teddy and which imaginary friend to invite over for the tea party. It made me wonder about life in general and whether there is sense in this madness... How do we know what our path is? Why don't we get answers to our questions? Should we be asking questions? Is it wrong to think the way you do? Why are some people such selfish, cruel beings? And is it okay to give up and curl under your duvet till you feel ready (enough) to face the world again? So many questions...all rhetorical...

Bakkie*: Afrikaans word for van or lorry.

I always always curl up in my bed until I feel ready to face the world again.

Childhood is the most wonderful time, because of its innocence, simplicity, and security.

As an adult, you lose a lot of that and things can be insane at times. But if you know your purpose and you have faith - then you no longer have a sense of wishing to have the past back - while disliking the hardships of adulthood.

Life is a journey - or actually, PART of a journey.

In my faith, we know that this life is only a miniscule part of that journey. We just need to be here for these 60 or 70 years (if we make it that long), do the best we can according to what God expects of us, and Eternity, we hope, will be one of never-ending bliss and happiness :)

Have you heard the Jack Parrow song "I Miss"? Puts a smile on my face and reminds me of a time "when the hardest decision was whether to play with a doll or a teddy and which imaginary friend to invite over for the tea party" Cool post!

Azra: Sigh...yes...

Po: :) My duvet is one of my fave things! :)

Dreamlife: Those are wise words, and more often than not I do know that, but there are times when it feels that is not part of my being, when my cells forget that is the truth. Thanks you for reminding me again. :)

Love and Stuff: Yes I have heard. "By the power of Graceskull!" :) Yeah this post is similar to that. Thank you.
