Enjoy the View

I try not to go backwards, it's not a good thing to think about the past so much that you aren't looking forward... that's where we should be focusing our efforts. But it's hard to not think about the places where I've lived a part of my life. They no longer are familiar to me, even when I visit. Along this creek I was 15 and it was a hard part of my life. If you've ever moved to a new place, you know what I mean. Even though the town was picture perfect, it didn't feel that way. 

I spent the remainder of what was left of my teen years in limbo until the BIG part of my life started. Isn't that just the way we are as teens, waiting for life to "start" instead of using each day to the fullest? You can't explain the urgency, that time is ticking, even when you're young. Sometimes the best advice comes from the least expected source...

  4. That is very good advice, indeed!
    I remember that stage of life - waiting for real life to start. It started and has flown by!

    1. We do that don't we, wait for something good to happen when sometimes... the fun times are right now! This year especially seems to have zipped by, my Mom used to say the years go faster the older you get!
