Looking back on my life, I realize that I did feel relaxed at one time. Life was easy so easy as a child. I would ride a bike, jump rope (I don't think kids jump rope anymore. Why?) or sit on the porch with friends. I stayed thin because I was always in action - doing something. I was outside everyday in the warm summer days in Ohio.
Life has changed so much. I raised two daughters. They were outdoors many days. However, many days it was likely they would be on the computer, a phone or watching tv. Raising my girls, I had to worry so much about the dangers in today's society. In school they were aware of drugs, teenage pregnancy....now, I really do not understand this. I grew up in the 60s when there was less opportunities to use birth control. It is discussed in school. How are so many girls getting pregnant during this time in our society. Just sayin....
I know it may not happen, however, I would like for my grandchildren to enjoy an easy life with less emphasis on techology and more time having fun.
