Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age.George Sand
When you reach a big milestone birthday you start reflecting on all the amazing things you have done, the regrets you have and the dreams you have for the future.
I’m just a girl from a farm in Limpopo that happened to move to the city on my own when I was 19. There was love lost and gained and I married just before another big milestone birthday. We just also celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. We survived 6 years of IVF and have 2 kids through surrogacy – plus 3 black cats. We’ve also travelled many places together and created a lot of memories along the way.
I’m not that sentimental, but…
I hold onto my childhood memories like there is no tomorrow. I still have my very first Barbie with her original jumpsuit; my paper dolls (is that still a thing?); a mini kids Tupperware set; my angel doll; and much more (don’t tell my husband);
As a kid I loved to watch Care Bears, Popples, He-Man, ThunderCats, Garfield, The Amazing Adventures of Morph (that clay dude), Around the World with Willy Fog, Dogtanian and the 3 Muskehounds, The Smurfs, Knight Rider, The Mysterious Cities of Gold, The A-Team, MacGyver, Rainbow Brite, The Gummi Bears… and when there is a remake of (most) of these shows I will take a look and remember just how much I loved it back in the day.
Never be a complete grown-up… hold onto your childhood forever!
Most people become so caught up in being an adult that they forget to have fun. I simply refuse to…
If there is a toy I want, I will buy it and put it on my desk or in my handbag. I’ll admire it and imagine what I adventures could have had with it… and then I go and have an adventure.
Walk barefoot – I don’t mean walk barefoot in a mall, that would just be gross! When you walk to your car, with your kids outside, on the beach… The view is different when you’re not wearing heels.
