Sometimes we have seasons in our lives that feel like gold, we don’t always realize it but we soon do after those seasons, and the memories and experiences become a treasure to us, it could be our days in school, our previous place of residence, our childhood friends, when we joined the football team, the crazy friends around us or the attention of our romantic interest.
Those days put the fun in funny and we love reminiscing over them, with pictures and albums to flip over and temporarily zap back to them good ole days.
But life is actually for living today, not reliving yesterday, no matter how great it was. Don’t get lost in your past stories, your Alma matter or secondary school crush. Get up and go out and make new memories. Learn the art of letting go, pursue the next big thing, stay excited, let the time of your life be every time of your life!
Join a club, volunteer in an NGO, make new friends, connect back with old friends, adopt a kid, start a business, ask her out, eat an entire chicken, do something, do something good and make new memories. Don’t join those guys who can only tell you what happened 20 years ago, tell us what happened last week, tell us what happened today! You’re not old enough to be only telling us stories, tell us visions. Show us the wounds of attempt gotten today, not just the scars of years back.
Life is too exciting to live in yesterday, everyday offers an opportunity of new incredible memories, if you miss you buddies of old too much, organize a reunion and make new memories. Because sometimes old memories and achievements are like the chaff that accumulates from your flame; if not cleared, it can actually snuff the present flame.
It sounds simple and it really is, you might be saying if you know how awesome it was, I’m saying if you know how awesome it’s going to be! Because this path shines brighter and brighter like the rising sun.
