Oh darling, don't you ever grow up.

I never understood Peter Pan when I was younger. The adult world seemed so fascinating and luring to my innocent eyes. My older cousins made teenage years appear so glorious that I could not help but envy their maturity. I longed for the age when I would finally become one of these stately individuals who blinded me with their regality.
Why, oh why, was I so delusional?
"To you, everything's funny.
You got nothing to regret.
I'd give all I have, honey,
if you could stay like that.
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up.
Just stay this little.
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up.
It could stay this simple.
I won't let nobody hurt you,
won't let no one break your heart.
No, no one will desert you.
Just try to never grow up, never grow up."
Never Grow up by Taylor Swift
Please, Peter. I'm begging you. Come fetch me so we can fly off together and never grow up.

  1. When I first watched Peter Pan I thought it was a catchy song. But I didn't understand it. I didn't mind growing up. Quite frankly, I didn't even think about growing up. But now time just flies by too fast, I miss all the innocent days, the playdates that I thought would never end. And now I know how very right Peter and Wendy were.

  2. I feel like a lot of people have said that, I didn't really think about it when I was little, but from like age 8 or 9, I've said I never want to grow up, I want to be a kid forever! (I still stand by that statement.)

  3. I used to think that if I dreamed har enough....wished hard enough that Peter would come for me. But as I grew older he never did. I still dream. I still wish upon a star. Some people say that I'm to old for it. But there wrong. You should ALWAYS dream. AND wish. Otherwise, life wouldn't be an adventure.

  4. I've always loved Peter Pan. Maybe it was because I'm a writer and that Neverland and pixie dust and all of that drew me and not so much the "never growing up" part, but I've just loved the whole story (and I've had a crush on Peter Pan) for a long time. Now, though, as I'm older, I sometimes say that I don't like growing up. :P It's just weird because people change--you change, your friends change, other people change.

    We're supposed to be going to Disney World in a couple of months, and I am SO excited to meet "Peter Pan." It's the closest thing to meeting the real "Peter Pan." ;) All the characters are so absolutely in-character....I love it! :)

    God bless,
    Joy :)

  5. I can't count how many times I wished Peter Pan was real so that he could take me to Neverland. I honestly have no idea why I wanted to grow up so much. I wish I would have savored my childhood a little more.

  6. I was the same... I couldn't wait to get older.

    Still love Peter Pan xD

  7. goodness, your words leave my eyes teary. i love taylor and that song. i sometimes wish i would never grow up, but sometimes i rush it, yet, at the end of the day, i'm with you on this one. great post, my lady. <3 xoxo - jess

  8. That's exactly how I feel about it. :) Not that growing up is bad or anything...just being a kid was so simple and just plain nice. :)
