Have You Ever Wished You Could Be Carefree Like a Child?

I trust you have all been well and bounced into the New Year with joy and a positive outlook.

Childhood Memories

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my childhood. My mind wanders off, whether it is quality family time, school days, friends that have come and gone, or friends that are still in my life.
The practices and habits that I have continued to uphold as I’ve transitioned into adulthood.

Fond Memories

I recall baking with my mum.  I always enjoyed meddling around in the kitchen and still do.
Creating the perfect chocolate cake, soft and fluffy and chocolaty taste that bursts in your mouth from the first bite.
The texture is so smooth and slightly sticky, the smell of sweetness yet bitter, and sometimes a little crunchy if a few chocolate chips are casually thrown into the mix, not too worried about how they will turn out once it is ready.
I just trusted it would be the perfect cake.

I have fond memories of spending time in the backyard with my dad.
His favourite pastime was gardening, and it was during those moments that my love for gardening began.
Digging up dirt, feeling the texture of the soil, the softness and hardness, the dampness and the dry.
The trees as they stand bare after they are pruned.
My dad taught me little tricks and tips that I could incorporate into my garden.
Though I am nowhere near as skilled as he was, I feel his presence beside me every time I try something new.

Playful Memories

A playful memory of being outside, on a swing made with an old tyre, tied to the tree.
The tree was a large Jacaranda.  The flowers in bloom,  beautiful bright, delicate purple flowers, covered the tree.
I swung and looked up; the tree looked enormous.
Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t, but through my childhood eyes, it was massive!

Simple memories and yet so impressionable.

Being a child is truly wonderful! You get to be carefree, fearless, and always ready to take on new adventures without any worries.
As we slowly enter a world of responsibilities, commitments and demands we start to lose sight of the little joys that life has to offer.

We live life on autopilot and lose our sense of freedom,  the freedom to dream. 

It is the dreams that take you places, discover new things, meet new like-minded people, and explore the world.
You can allow your mind to visit those happy memories.
Relax your tense body, settle your busy mind by taking a few deep breaths and be mindful of your surroundings, including what you see, hear, feel, say to yourself, and smell.

Take a few minutes and encapsulate the memories. 


Imagine them in a transparent bubble.  The bubble will never burst and can be accessed anytime you want to revisit those memories.
It floats in the sky at your reach any time you want to be taken back in time.

So go ahead, let your inner child run wild and see where it takes you!


Allow your inner child to revisit you now and then.
Whether it’s through creative expression, outdoor adventures or simply indulging in some childhood favourites, giving yourself permission to let loose and have fun can have a profound impact on your well-being and outlook on life.

So go ahead, let your inner child run wild and see where it takes you!
