Blast from the past.

One of my goals while in Ohio was to clean out my room. I imagined it would primarily consist of throwing out old clothes and light dusting. In the end, it took me hours to sort through letters, pictures, books, cds and numerous odds and ends from all stages of my life.

Reliving memories used to make me sad because I missed them terribly. This emotionality was at its peak before heading off to college. Oh how time changes things! As I was sorting I found that many items which used to tug at my heart strings no longer felt quite so important. Being able to let go of items from my past helped me realize it's because I have such a great life now. While I'll always cherish my memories and experiences, I don't yearn to go back to the "glory days" because the best days are still to come.
