Just a little something about a specific memory from my child hood

A True Story By Lily Wilson:


I remember one day specifically in grade 3. I was sitting in the back of the classroom next to the window as usual. I remember a pretty blue butterfly fluttering past. My mum had told me that butterflies where fairies in disguise and they would play in the sunshine and sip pollen from brightly coloured flowers. I began to picture princess fairies playing in their fairy gardens and dipping their pretty little feet into froggy ponds filled with lily pads to cool themselves down. “LILY WILSON! ARE YOU AWAY WITH THE FAIRIES AGAIN!? BRING YOUR TIDY TRAY DOWN NEXT TO MY DESK AND DO SOME WORK! ” I zoned back into reality after being interrupted by Ms Grants screechy voice. I was indeed exactly away with the fairies. We should never discourage young people from dreaming dreams. Eight years later, still to this day I do the exact same thing. My imagination takes me away from this cruel world and lets me escape to anywhere in the universe. My imagination is honestly the only thing that gets me by each day, especially at school. It’s such a beautiful feeling that can only be embraced if you make everything around you is stop. You almost pause yourself in time, like pressing a button on a remote. I will never ever stop dreaming.

- “I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?” -John Lennon


:) hope you enjoyed. Promise me you will never stop dreaming <3
