You often hear that the past comes back to haunt you, which is completely and utterly true. Unless you suffer from short-term memory loss or a horrific accident, whatever happened stays in your mind. I also hear the phrase “Forgive and Forget”, but you can’t undo the harm that has already happen. Instead, the phrase should be “Learn and Live”. We can only learn from our mistakes and those of others, and continue on with our lives as we have been.
Time to pick up the pieces of your life that you’ve left scattered everywhere. Stop pitying yourself and start living again. Breathe the fresh air and feel the sand in between your toes. Close your eyes and open them, just to see everything in a new light. It’s time to be happy again.
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
And I’m feeling good.
I look around and everything’s changed: life, school, friends. Things aren’t the same, and never will be. Everything is constantly changing, and I’m not sure if I can keep up with it. Here I am in this moment, of this day, of this hour, of this second, aware of everything going on. Yet, I feel lost.
Remember when you were little and how nothing really mattered? Now, you’re left with work, stress, and nervous situations. Whatever happened to wanting to grow big and tall? When did we lose sight of what it means to be “grown up”?
Take time to remember your childhood by watching little cousins, blasting Disney music, or reminisce in old shows like Out of the Box and Rugrats. Life hasn’t changed, only you have. Be the grown-up you wanted to be when you were younger, and remember what it means to build towers out of blocks and play pretend.
