Story alchemist, author, magazine editor, and mom Amy Oscar answers the question:
How does your fun little girl self show up in your life now?
"My little girl self DOESN'T show up very often - and your question reminds me of that. I'd like to see her much more - I'd like to see the little girl who played with her dollhouse for hours, just sat on the floor, deeply involved in moving mini-furniture around, in deciding where, exactly, the little red table that my mother made for me should be placed."
Right now, as I visit my mother - who is 80 now - and share memories over coffee, I am remembering more and more that little girl. I am letting her show up when my mother has a difficult night and I walk down the hall and slip into bed beside her, and hold her hand, the way she used to hold mine."
