Even Glory Days Fade

Going back in Time

We all remember high school and all the drama, pain, and in truth the easier times. Though at the time, high school was the hardest thing we had to live through. In a way it’s trail by fire, a now-a-days right of passage. Looking back on those days, most of us want to go back to the easier times. All our friends were there, our first loves, kiss, experience, etc. To only go back, would make life easier, right?

Lately, my memories and emotions have been holding onto past memories of friends and working on reaching out to them.  Sadly most of this is a waste of time, for once it’s done and in the past, then it really should be left there. If the other end of your past decided to leave pieces of their past behind, so should you.  No reason to keep reaching out to the hand that’s just out of reach.

It’s good to hold and store the memories of your friends during the glory days, but in time memories fade. That’s okay, because you have a life to build with or without the old friends. Time will always move on, things will change, and you will grow as a person. Don’t let the pain of your memories stain you, instead embrace the present and the future. Your friends list may shrink, but the deeper connection will grow.

High School is known as the Glory Days for a reason, it’s a time when we are free, no worries, just old enough to try everything, but young enough to be protected from the world. After the glory days we all start to move on our own paths for a new start. Some of us don’t leave the place where we grew and that’s okay, but if you don’t experience the world then you are missing out. You can live where you grew up, keep the same friends, and live the glory days over and over again. Just note people will leave, things will change, and new worries will always arise.

You can’t live in the past forever. The memories are great and priceless, but you can never go back to yesterday. Learn from every experience you went through, enjoy it while it is here and enjoy what is coming to you!

This writer here, loved his glory days maybe too much and reached out a long time for the old friends, knowing that era has come to a close a long time ago. For the longest time, I tried to hold onto it only realizing that it’s never go to be that way again. Everyone moves on and even though I did move onto, the small part of me still tried to cling onto that past. Though, when I cling to hard I look around at my life and sawwhat I have now. So, my “Glory Days” were nothing compare to my grown up days, I can never give up my awesome memories and never give up what is in front of me now.

Remember to do the same, enjoy this life every single minute of it. Enjoy your glory day memories. Enjoy your family and friends for as long as you can. Do what you need to do to make you happy. Just don’t live in the past and live in regret. What is done is done and you did what you could.

Enjoy the life for all it is key in this Savage World; that you are longer just living in, but beginning to own!!
