Short or Long Decade: NaBloPoMo

Advertisements

Do you think of a decade as a short or long period of time? (Is the century a 10th full or a 10th empty!)

Sometimes it doesn’t seem like things have changed. Then I remember that ten years ago, I was 30. I was married to someone else. Everything was different. I didn’t have so many goals. I was just trying to get through the day every day. I didn’t listen to music as much. The television was usually on Nickelodeon. I miss my “Dora the Explorer” naps. Back then, I watched a lot of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

So when I think about how I didn’t know most of the people that I talk to now, that is crazy how time plays with your mind.

I’m glad that the past can stay in the past. We can all move forward. Then reminisce in ten years about how good it was to be 40.

This was about ten years ago.

  1. inspiretheworld2day – I am a stay at home mom with two wonderful children and a fantastic husband. I enjoy trying new things, and recently discovered meditation and yoga. My newest love is blogging that helps me stay focused and grounded and most importantly find the humor in everyday occurrences. I am constantly evolving into the new person I'm becoming with each new day, and often stopping to pause for just a moment to take it all in while breathing and taking time to enjoy the ride.

    It’s always nice to reminisce in the past, to remind us what we can appreciate now in the present 🙂
