Past & Present (no I don’t mean the gift)

I’ve been talking to my grandma recently, so far we have 20 emails sent back and forth throughout this past month. It doesn’t sound like many but if you knew my track record for getting back to people on time you’d understand…it’s not that I don’t read the emails but I usually forget to respond. Anywayyyys my grandma reminded me of something.

Those foreign pictures are what some would refer to as dance halls. My generation doesn’t have things like that (I wish we still did), or if they do it cost a lot and you have to deal with the music that either blasts your ears off or the words in them are so nasty you can’t stand it.

Soda fountains! Not the one’s that have a billion kinds of liquor but the kind that kids go hang out after school and get ice cream and soda and just talk or do whatever. Why did these have to disappear? What was so unpopular about them that they had to close?

One more thing I miss like truly miss and don’t understand why things have to change it:

People? No I’m an introvert so I don’t mind not being around people but if you look closely you’ll see…

Their eyebrows? No!

Their hair? No!

Their smiling faces? Yes! I miss seeing the emotions people have on their faces. I miss the interaction you used to have and now we have to avoid people. I miss life before all the craziness happened. I just want to go back to when I was 5 and I had no worries other than if mom was making cookies that day. But does that mean I have to live in the past? No. Life is so precious so don’t feel wish upon things you can’t change. Instead choice today what your attitude will be. Live in the present and bring joy to those your around.

See you guys soon! ❤

  1. Great post! There is so much we can learn from the past, but it won’t do anybody any good if we are stuck longing for the past. Though, I definitely have those days when I wish I was 5 again! Thanks for sharing this! I loved hearing your thoughts!
