I was going through old photos, and was taken back by this collage of me in my mid-teens and twenties. Oh -what memories and stories some of them do tell!
It's funny looking back at old photos. I'm now fifty seven. While taking a good look at my aging process, and these so called more mellow years that I have now reached, I often wonder who she is- or was. I'm not going to go deep into it today, but I thought I would share! The one thing that hasn't changed since those days for me- is my weight. I'm still a petite little thing!
Some people ask me, what the best years were. I often thought my vibrant teens and twenties, where seemingly one hasn't a care in the world. Do I have any regrets? Gee, that's a tough question- really! Growing up is no easy pie. Although it was innocent and so very frightening at times, I'm amazed how bold my behaviour was in my teens. And yet, on the other hand, I was so introverted and shy. And that part no one seems to believe. Well, I most certainly did it my way. But, I have to say, I would have done things differently. Many of you- I know, wouldn't change a thing. Wisdom tells me, not to have regrets. So, I try to change my perspective, and turn it around- in order to think every age should be viewed as a blessing. This I can only say now, as I realize how time is so very fleeting.
Do you have old pictures of yourself that you can hardly relate with anymore? What was it that surfaced for you from various passages of your own life? Or how much of it did you manage to write into short stories or books?
here in Florida. Low 80's is heaven! It will be this way- all week!
What-ever you're doing, try to enjoy some small moments in the Now! Even if it's just cooking or cleaning. After-all, that's all we have!
