A Connection Through The Past

As much as my time out here in the Maritimes has been about learning new tools for my readings, it has been as equally important for me to reconnect to who I am.

I think for a lot of us, as we get older and mature into adults, we can lose the true sense of who we are.  We get busy with everyday life…raising families, trying to advance in the workplace, and conforming to the expectations from society that we put upon ourselves.

Most of this is great, don’t get me wrong.  However, what I am able to see with a lot of people is the loss of connection to who they are and the connection to their inner child.

I have a great example.

January here has been a great month for lots and lots of snow!  A couple of days ago, a friend and I decided to go outside and build a huge snow fort in her backyard.  We spent a couple of hours digging out all the snow and had a great time!  I think the last time I built a snow fort was when I was around 11 or 12 years old.  Over the past couple days it is all we have talked about, just like you would as if you were a kid.  We’ve been planning what to do next, how to improve it and planning when we would work on it.  I really felt connected to my inner child at the time.

What interested me the most with the building of our most awesome snow fort, was the reactions we would get from people that we told what we’ve been up to.  Many people were shocked and questioned why we would do that.  Some people thought it was a cool idea and secretly wanted to go and build their own fort.  Then there were the few that were actually going to go and get started on their own awesome snow fort.

So, what is stopping you from going out to build your own fort?  Or try something fun from your childhood?  I think for most people, it’s the worry they have of what other people might think of them.  Of how they would be perceived by their peers.  Some people have simply just forgotten how to connect to who they were as a kid.  Here’s a little secret, the more you try to connect to your inner child, the easier it gets!  The more you connect, the more fun you have in life!  It’s a great side effect of being a kid again!

I have a few pictures of us working on our snow fort, which is not completed yet.  We have currently decided to renovate our fort and are in the planning process of making it bigger and better! 🙂

    Hey Drea,

    That’s awesome!!! I totally remember doing stuff like that when I was a kid and living up north. I would do it again if we got as much snow as you have over there. Can’t wait to see the new pictures of your renovations!! 🙂

    Hi Drea,

    I am the one who is super envious and wants to build my own snow fort!!! Awesome! OK now all I need some snow. darn. No snow in BC.

    • Drea:

      Yeah, the snow in BC is lacking, guess you could always drive up to the mountains..haha. 🙂 What else can you think of doing as a child that would help you connect to that energy? Hmmm….fishing? Darts maybe?? 😉

  • Karen:

    wow ! it is really great. i never see the actual snow in my whole life. it really looks great. thanks for sharing with us.

    • Drea:

      The snow is beautiful. Sometimes we will get snow that sparkles…it is so pretty to see it when the sun hits it during the day. I could stare at it for hours when it looks like that. Very magical. I’m glad I was able to brighten your day with my story! 🙂

  • Bart:

    Wow Drea I guess Paul wasn’t joking when he said you gals has enough snow to build a snow fort. Looks like fun 😀

  • Lin:

    Awesome Drea…..I closed my eyes and could see the snow sparkling in the sunshine. I love it when the snow blows in the wind. Moving sparkles!!!! I remember building snowforts as a kid when I lived in Winnipeg. There was this awesome protected area beside the house, shielded by fencing in the shape of a ‘U’…so the snow would drift in their like crazy….great fort building assistance!! Would love to see the renos when they are done. Keep smiling.
