Reconnect With Your 7 Year Old Self

I have a challenge for you, this year as we close out and make way for a new year take some time to reflect. We all reflect some each year, but this year you will find yourself reflecting so much more than normal. Go with the flow of this energy, embrace it and acknowledge it. Take some time in the quiet and get a pen and paper. Write a letter to yourself to your seven-year-old self, talk to yourself honestly about things that happen and how you overcame them, talk to yourself and acknowledge the things that have changed and the ways you wish you were still more like that child. Reassure yourself and reflect on just what all you have done.

See what all you took with you into adulthood both good and bad. What things did you do that you wanted to do then? What things even silly things should you take the time to do? Where all have you been? Acknowledge everything you have gone through and overcame. What do you miss, be honest. What was your personality like? Were you honest, were you mischievous? Were you adventurous, fearless? What did you love doing? Do you ever still do it?

What things do you want most for yourself and your life now? What can you take from your childhood to assist you in this? Is it perseverance? Is it sheer willpower? What do you need to say to yourself at that age, what does that child need to know or hear? Tell them in the most kind and honest way. What have you held onto that you need to let go of? We forgive others, can we take the time to acknowledge and forgive ourselves? You will be amazed at what you uncover. Just look at what all you have overcome.

I was born and raised in the smallest of towns in Southwest Virginia. A town that is extraordinarily active, yet a town that is like it's very own little mini Bible belt. My dad was Baptist, my mom pentecostal, and I'm paranormal. I would venture to say it is somewhat of a family trait. One that is met with equal acceptance and curiosity as much as it is met with skepticism. Individually and collectively so much has been experienced and witnessed at times to such a degree that one might wonder how on earth there is room for doubt. I dont have all the answers, I do not have it all figured out. Im as human as everyone else relying heavily many mornings on a lot of coffee and a little Jesus. In fact, I can't decide what I want for dinner most days. One constant is I cannot go a single day without chocolate. Pour a cup of coffee, or a little tea and whiskey and join me in my confessions of a haunted freak.
