Looking back with a diffrent view today

I was thinking today of many happy memories from my childhood.  I think at times I visit those times when I was scared or hurt, and think that was my whole childhood,  maybe inside I wasn’t sad at all, what came out was happiness.  I think that’s what has always came out.  There may have been sadness in there like there is with everyone.  I guess we don’t have to look at those sad times  and say our childhood was sad.  Just thinking about my Papa singing in church makes me smile.  I enjoyed my world of make believe.  It was like being at Disney World everyday, and I really did see things that weren’t there and enjoyed trying to make my sister’s see it as well.  Yesterday was one of those days I think I was just feeling sorry for myself.  Guess that happens sometimes.  Today I’m able to look back and say I was happy, bad things may have happened from time to time, but I was able to be happy or at least come across that way.  I’m still that way today.

Concentrate on those good memories!  It gets so tiring dwelling on the crappy ones.

A very healthy way of looking at things.  A great step in bringing some balance to your life and soul.  I stay on that seasaw myself, Derek.  I also lived in a world of make-believe.  I still do!  Best Wishes
