Enid Blyton was one of my favourites and I adored The Faraway Tree and yes now I'm really showing my age.
Tonight as I sit here writing this post, I have the movie 'Bridge to Terabithia' on the television and I'm transported back to the magical worlds of my childhood. How have I never seen this movie before? For the record though, I hate movies which make me cry. I didn't expect this one to.
What is it about magical worlds which enchants and engages us? I think I really needed to see this movie and its message about needing to keep our minds open and the need to believe. The reality is that our imaginations are the only things that set the limits.
It's a children's movie from a book which was originally published in 1977 - I would have been 6 years old then, which is a lifetime ago. I think we all need to find our inner child even as adults and remember that our magical worlds are as close as our imaginations let them be.
I've let my world lose some of its sparkle and zing in the last few months and I've recently taken the first steps to gain back that magical zip that makes me believe I can dance on a star and swing on a cloud.
I've taken the leap of faith and resigned from my job. It's time to believe in me and all of the amazing things that I am capable of. Twelve years with one company means more than a quarter of my life has been spent working for this company.
So I'm more than ready for the new challenges and amazing opportunities that await me. My magical world is as scary as it is exciting. I just have to believe.
What do you believe in, or do you need a reminder occasionally too?
