Have you ever taken a trip down memory lane? It can be pretty darn interesting to say the least.
A trip prior to Covid brought up so many memories and I thought it would be interesting to share. Wondering if any of you have experienced similar thoughts and feelings. We don’t take time to see things that may have changed our life in small ways. Choices we make.
In another land (small town) called Home, lived a girl who was totally a free spirit, fun loving, and a party girl. Did no one harm but she lived life and enjoyed each day as it came. Many turned their backs if she joined them at a lunch counter, or they would often cross the street in fear of being smeared by her energy. Little did they know she was very aware of their actions but said nothing?
A short while ago I had the opportunity to revisit this area after many years and of course the good memories were there for sure, but it did bring back the ugly ones as well. We take the good ones and toss the bad memories that hold negative energy.
Old friends, from that time came to visit, brought their smiles along, and giggles galore at the antics that we carried out way back when. Visiting my first love when I was 16. He was happy about the visit, so glad to see me, and that smile was still there. Many laughs about him teaching me to dance. My love passed away but to a happier world I’m sure and leaving memories to keep with me.
But along with the happy days came a feeling with heavy heart which peaked as I drove along certain roads, it was like this very dark cloud hung over everything. From this trip I learned a couple of things. You cannot turn your life back, and the past, happy, or sad, cannot be changed.
We move forward and make new memories, new people, new places. It is great to keep the memories, just don’t stay there too long. Let them pass. My thoughts on life. What are yours?
