Sometimes, I feel very much like this. Sometimes, I remember my wilder, younger years and want to jump up and do something just like that all over again. To feel just as free, just as uninhibited.
Then I think of how very much things, times and people have changed and know there is no way to really recapture those times. Those specific times are gone.
That doesn't mean that I can't still do some things with abandon. That I can't still do things spur of the moment. I can still cut up, I can still be silly. I can still strike out on a new path, if I so desire.
I've always tempered my recklessness with an overarching umbrella of safety and responsibility. I've always had a sense of how suddenly the wild and fun can turn into tragic and sad. So, I've always selected my risks carefully, though I've definitely matured as to what is acceptable and what is not.
I've also found, as I get older, that simpler can be as exciting and rejuvenating as complicated and costly. It's like so many other things in life, it's mostly in how you chose to view it. What you are willing to invest of yourself. What you chose to value and to cherish.
What about you, do you still let yourself cut loose?
