Do any of you feel a lot younger than your years? I'm 30 (?!). I feel about 12 a lot of the time. I walk, and feel like running, there is a spring in my step, an energetic need to jump, to dance, to giggle. Conversely, I sometimes get an extreme sense of immobility, when my legs feel like lead and are hard to move. It's either one or the other, with me. The intense energy tends to come first thing in the morning, and often after an interest binge. I feel about 5 ha!. How can I be 30? Adult? What?
61 going on 18, and I am not that comfortable with it - although it has its moments. Also, impostor syndrome is a constantly reoccuring thing.
I remember my grandmother telling me that she didn't feel any different inside than when she was a teenager. She was 80 at the time.
I am 63 and not only feel a lot like I did when I was 10, a lot of time those memories come flooding back, not all of them bad. And I still engage in childish pursuits such as blowing bubbles and avoiding the cracks of paving slabs. I hope I never grow up!
Anything and everything. I've written since I was a child. It's been my obsession - both my escape from the world and my way of making sense of it. Stories, poems, scripts, novels, articles. My most recent thing has been an account of my caring for my mother during the last six months of her life. I've posted a snippet here, if you're interested...
Another piece of writing...
Yes, never grow up :) I think it's great to still enjoy the simple pleasures in life! I love jumping and skipping when the mood takes me.

Well given the recurrent thing with imposter syndrome (i.e. not being able to accept ones achievements and fearing that those achievements will be proven to be fraudulent anyway) perhaps consider steering the imposter syndrome in upon itself, and enjoy those senses of being 18 more appropriately and justifiably therefore ~ in the candid and impeccable sense of it, possibly.
