The young girl couldn’t wait till she started school. She had been told it wouldn’t happen till she turned 4years of age. She sat up with a bolt on that long awaited morning, her voice filled with excitement, “mummy, can I start school today? I am 4years old!”
The next few years were exciting, birthday parties with new found friends, relationships breaking and mending and girly chit chats about fall outs and boisterous boys. The excitement gradually began to wane! Phonics lessons got boring. The little fingers became itchy for pens. Soon pencils were detested and pen licenses desired to give the feel of being grown up. The glory of primary school quickly faded away for a desire to move to high school, where of course life would be more exciting.
There was no doubt, high school would be the best phase of life. Alas, it wasn’t quite as hoped so expectations of happiness were transferred to sixth form dreams. Unfortunately it didn’t happen there again, so next port of call to have it was uni. University life was fun but it was still missing. Oh! Finding the right relationship had to be the missing bit…it still didn’t happen. Marriage, examinations then qualifications, jobs and promotions, awards and recognitions, expeditions and celebrations…..it did not emerge! Decades had now gone and lifetime fast running out, yet it had not been found and it has to be somewhere.
The young girl was now in an aged body, opportunities for exciting activities apparently much less than the decades gone. If it had been in all the past moments that made up the past years, life may have been more fulfilling…… how could she have missed it? There had been times she had felt close to having it, but somehow it slipped away before she had it fully.
Whatever it be, for each person, the only assurance is now! it is now. Many nows make the memories that brightens lives in years to come.
Please don’t get trapped in WIFI! “When I Find It………”
Life is a journey, each moment lost never to be regained, so best to make the most of each season whilst moving on in hope of better things.
Enjoy it as it is now!
