Amazing where we go, what we do and see in a year.
If I wrote down where I was, my dreams, my prediction of where I’d be in a year… as well as my latest obsessions, music trends, friends and favorite foods,
I can almost guarantee it’s nowhere NEAR where I am, what I like, etc of today.
Yet I’d have a hard time remembering more than a couple hours of stories of and ENTIRE year of what I did and accomplished.
The memories that I have that I am reminded of once and a while are ones that were emotion filled, real, exciting, sad, mad…
Something different, something new, something blue.
One in particular, I remember very very clearly of when I was in an accident this summer. I remember the smoke, the people, the place the feelings, the extreme sadness my car was no longer in the same condition or drivable.
Then I remember being grateful that I was still alive, and so was everyone else involved.
Was that a great time in my life? At the time, NO
Looking back? Well… I think of it as bittersweet.
If I hadn’t gotten into that accident, and lost my beautiful car, I would have really been stressed about money now, and also I wouldn’t of been able to appreciate all that I have now either.
I always used to think of creating memories as a good thing, like they had to be GOOD memories.
But I will take any memory I have, without them I will not remember the lessons, the people, good or bad.
And the good ones to remind me that you get a little of both worlds in this life.
I’m gonna make memories, and I’m excited to know that if it’s a rough day, I get to look back on it and ponder why.
If it’s good, I’ll have a great story to look back on in the future.
