Day 12: I miss...

Ooohhhh...... this prompt feels like letting the air out of a balloon.  There's a lot that I miss, people, places, times...... and I really try to not dwell on them because they evoke a degree of sadness that tends to linger for longer than I care to admit.  Which means you're getting another list.  Cause they're less emotional.  Or something.

  • I miss my equestrian life.  It was such a special chapter of my life.
  • I miss my sweet, cuddly cat.
  • I miss the carefree innocence of childhood.  I didn't get to be a kid long enough.....
  • I miss the family camping trips before they got bad.
  • I miss my California "family" and the vacations I had with them.
  • I miss being able to make decisions that were not based on money.  
  • I miss the milestone experiences I skipped growing up.

Day 12 Prompt: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...)


  1. I'm with you on trying not to dwell on things missed ...people, friends, opportunities ~ reflection is nice but sometimes can lead us to a sad place ... if I'm making a list of what I don't miss, I fill with joy hahahahaha!!! Judi

    1. I like the idea of a "what I don't miss list" and might have to get on that one soon!

  2. As I read your post, I realized that so much of what you wrote, is what I wrote also.

    And it hurts my heart to realize that there are others out there that feel similar, that have experienced things that have resulted in pain and loss of childhood.

    It is one of the worst things, I think.

    1. I wish that I found comfort in knowing others have walked similar paths, but instead it causes hurt. I know some realms of inner-work use that comparing to help feel less alone, but.... sheeshe! Sometimes things just suck no matter how you look at em!


So? What do you think?
