My childhood was a blast. I had no worries. It was all about playing outside with friends, biking, roll skating, going to swimming and dancing lessons after school.
One memory I still remember vividly is this one from the kindergarten. I must have been 4 years old at the time. The evening before I went to the circus with my parents and sister. During the show I was captivated by the acrobat troupe. So the next day at school I tried to do the bridge on a swing. I thought it looked easy, why didn’t I try it myself. Standing on the swing in bridge position I asked a friend to move it fastly. Immediately I fell and felt the pain and thought, oops. Result: a big bump on my forehead and worried teachers. They called my mother to pick me up. She wasn’t mad but she only whispered, why did you do it? I answered because it seemed fun. Later on I thought I had been lucky as I could have broken my neck by doing that.
This is one of the memories I have of my childhood which involved me falling and causing many scars on my leg. I love those old times as I had no worries and most of all I was fearless!
