Mysterious Thoughts…

As she sits alone, in solitude pondering what it would be like to grow up, it dawns on her how delightful it would be to go to her best friend’s birthday party; mysterious thoughts from the mysterious mind of a child. However familiar or exciting growing up can be, the purity of her thoughts drive her back to enjoying her present moment. As children, sometimes we crave that the steps to adulthood be accelerated. Wouldn’t it be nice if instead of hastening our life, we learn to enjoy our present moment and grow with time? Maintaining the simplicity of our thoughts brings life’s surprises and makes them worth treasuring. In this stunning portrait, Shirren Lim (Jakarta, Indonesia) has managed to express the feeling of solitude and mystery completely!
