Prompt: What was fun in childhood?
Hello my friend! So glad you could stop by for coffee. It’s always so nice to connect. Once again, grab a glass or a cup of some thing you love and let’s chat…
If we were having coffee…. I would start by telling you that I have entered into another month-long challenge. It’s called #10minaday. The goal is to help you develop a better routine to support creativity. I haven’t been writing regularly so, I hope it works! Or should I say… I hope I work! We get a writing prompt every morning. Today’s prompt was to think about and do something fun… Especially something that was fun in childhood. So, since I want to use these prompts to improve my writing commitment, I’m choosing to interpret the prompt as a writing assignment.
If we were having coffee… I would say that just about any memory that comes to mind when I try to remember something that was fun in childhood has to do with being outside especially near water. Nature fed my soul even as a child.
We had a pretty rustic cottage in a very small town. It was on the bay. We had probably an acre or two of land. My happiest memories of childhood are of being at the cottage, during the summer, and doing anything and everything outside. Swinging on our makeshift swing, playing on the sand, riding my three wheel grandma bike up and down the driveway… It didn’t matter what it was as long as it was outside. And it didn’t matter if I was outside with a friend or with my brothers or by myself. I just loved being outside!
I’m realizing that nature has been my support and my healing for my entire life….especially any time spent on/near bigger bodies of water. It’s where I feel the best… Where I am most alive… Obviously, I’m needing to do more of anything and everything having to do with nature!
If we were having coffee….I’d also tell you that I’m making plans to get together with a friend from college next week. We haven’t seen each other in like 30+ years. I’m so looking forward to her visit!
If we were having coffee….at this point I’d be concerned that I was talking too much. I’d honestly want to hear about you now….
So my friend? What’s a fun childhood memory that comes to mind? And what fun thing can you do now to support your own healing and health? Is it something that started way back in childhood, like it did for me? Feel free to share in the comments section below.
I’m so glad you’re here 💜
