Some days you hear a song or two and your mind goes back through time. It is amazing what music will bring to mind. I started out on one of those journeys back in time today. I think it is a good thing to do on occasion.
Remembering where you were, who you were with, the dreams you had for the future. I was young without a clue where I wanted to go in life. As the memories flow along, key decisions that were made and changed my path stand out.
Friends and family that stuck by you, or didn’t as the case may be, all bring a plethora of thoughts and feelings to the fore. Wondering where some are, knowing where to find a few. Going on to find more music of days gone by to encourage more memories to come to mind.
It is a bittersweet time when I indulge this mood. Things I would change if I could … but then some of my greatest achievements would go undone, I believe. Once again coming to terms with who I am in my entirety … concocted from countless moments that have woven, and continue to weave, the tapestry that is my life.
If you haven’t slowed down to have ‘a reckoning’ moment lately, perhaps you will indulge in one soon. It helps clear the cobwebs and put you back in focus regarding the where you were, where you are and where you want to go aspects of every day life.
