Growing up I didn’t have fancy clothes, cool gadgets, or expensive toys. But I hardly felt I was lacking for it. Instead, my childhood was filled with homemade mud pies “baked” on old water heaters and DIY glass dome homes for pet beetles. I think what my family lacked in finances they more than made up for with time, love and lots of creativity.
When I grew up and eventually got the things I wanted as a kid, I still looked back fondly on those days. I think about the magic of make believe and cars made out of cardboard boxes and tiny paper boats that sailed atop rain puddle rivers. This is why I’m always surprised when people attempt to procure happiness from financial wealth, professional success and a perfect life. Maybe they bought into reality TV, dreams sold by commercials and that temporary, false facade of what happiness really is.
