1. Childhood: while it may seem a dim and distant memory, our childhood was a very interesting time and one that which it would be nice to return to when our adult lives seem difficult. It was a time of wonder and learning…and gazing wishfully at adults who “had it so good”. Think back to the wonder, the innocence of our childhood. The super hero games, dolls, simple toys that truly sparked the imagination. Jot down some notes as you allow yourself to reflect. Sometimes it’s useful to chat about your childhood with the people who shared it with you, your siblings and parents. Jot their ideas down as well. Soon you will have a list that when you review you will see that the ideas and the emotions are all there to be written about. These are things that are still needed in our complex and fast-paced society today.
3. Post-secondary and/or work: so we’re done high school and have to decide if we’re going on to university or if we’re going to start working right away. Back in our Baby Boomer days, university was a lot cheaper but usually left for those who were the “smarter kids” in school. Now, even though it is more expensive, there are many options for post-secondary and there are more attending. But think back to the excitement and unsurety of that time. The question of “what do I want to be when I grow up” was front and center on our minds (some of us still ask that to this day). Stepping out into the adult world, whether it was at school or at work, was a large step and often very fearfully made. Write about that! Let others, especially today’s teens, know that it has always been that way and always will be that way. The fears of making the wrong choice are just as real today as it was for us back then. Empathize through your writing and you will have others reading your pearls of wisdom and about how you survived.
