As a kid one of my biggest disappointments was discovering that if I were to ever reach a cloud I would not be able to hold it in my hand, sleep on it , or eat it like cotton candy. The thing is I grew up watching a lot of #carebears
and if you grew up watching that you know how awesome the show was. But behind all that fluff I learned my first sense of disappointment and it stuck with me until today - the feeling of being let down from expectation and high hopes , the reality I had built for myself convinced that if Care Bears could live up in the clouds so could I; i was determined , until i had to discover a new reality, one where childhood fantasies and dreams crumble one by one. And so we learn as kids what disappointment is what it's like to be robbed of our expectations from life. From the colorful realities we had built ourselves. And without noticing we carry the effect of this transition into our adulthood, where we live in constant direction of facing disappointment because that becomes the expected , the norm. What we have conditioned ourselves towards. What we call our comfort zone. But we still have that inner child voice within us that whispers "get out of your comfort zone" , dream big, and embrace the unknown , feel excitement and have faith. All of the things we were born with but we lost somewhere along the journey of life only to circulate back in search of it.
