I have a vivid memory of when I was three years old. At the time, I was taken to the Graveyard by my grandfather to visit my late Grandmother’s graveside. Out of nowhere a thought popped in my head that if every human has a body, then that must mean I also have one too. I then started to think about who I was in this life and if I would grow up to be someone famous.

After getting home I immediately looked in the mirror and that’s when I realized that I was a little girl.  My though of the time went something like this: “I remember now, I’m a brand-new person here!”. Afterwards, I had a strange realization that I could basically find anyone in the mirror and that person would be me.

I spent the next few years thinking to myself that I should enjoy being a little girl while it lasted as it wouldn’t be long before I grew up. It’s a strange memory but I remember it like it happened yesterday.
