Oh my gosh, don't you have those moments when you wish you could be 7 years old forever?  No bills, no work, no coming home from work to more responsibilities, no assumptions that you know what you want to do with your life, you can play outside in the mud after school and have someone to help you clean up, etc. I know for some of you this wish may occur way more often than for others.  Yes, becoming an adult means more freedom, but it also means more responsibility.  Responsibility is a form of restraint, if you ask me.  And this is why so many times I catch myself daydreaming about being younger, or at least acting younger.  Moreover, when you are younger, for some reason society more readily accepts the fact that you are happy, without question.

 I understand that as time passes people become hurt 
and may harden their hearts to protect from
future pain, whether deliberately or in-deliberately,
but this does not mean that all people should harden their
hearts as they grow older and "mature."

For example, when people become young adults and seem to be happy, society sees it as "out of place."  Which is why people sometimes ask me, "Are you drunk?" In my head I shout back, "For real? A smile and a giggle is all it took for you to jump to that conclusion?  And you assume I can not achieve that without the help of alcohol? You deserve a smack just for thinking that. Mmmhm!"  But in reality, I answer to them with a half smile, "No, I'm just happy.  I don't need alcohol to be happy.  I actually don't drink."  Figure that!  OOOOOH the things that puzzle me from day to day.  Have you had a similar experience?  I know there are people out there that have been in a similar situation. Please share!

By the way, I'm looking for Mexican Fashion Bloggers from Cuernavaca, Mexico!
I totally want to do a fashion blogger meet up in early January when I go there for school. :)
