You Were Wild Once


Being wild is not necessarily a bad thing.  If you are a free spirit and nonconformist, embrace your wildness and don't let anyone tame you.

A good goal for the new year!

    1. Arlene, you wild thing you! I got my ears pierced when I was 12 at my grandparents house. My mother was not pleased.

  2. As you get older it seems harder to be brave...or wild. I consider myself brave to hike by myself! And I'm going to keep going! Happy New year!

    1. Diane, I found the opposite to be true. I think I am braver and wilder. I am proud of you for hiking by yourself! xo

  4. From this wild girl who marches to the beat of a different drummer....wild and brave and being different is a beautiful thing. I have found getting older to be a freeing thing.

    1. I completely agree, Kim. I have found life to be more freeing and beautiful just being myself. I wish I learned this years ago!

  5. I guess I've never been very wild, Gina, and I know I'm somewhat naive, but we are, what we are.

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
