Lifes a funny old thing. When your there in the moment, living it; it feels like it's gonna last forever.

The friends, relationships, job, nights out, nights in, laughs, giggles. It feels great and amazing,

And then life changes. As it must. For us to learn and grow and often go on to bigger and better things.

But sometimes when life gets tough we find ourselves thinking back, looking at old photos and saying "life was better and easier back then".

But when your looking at photos, reminiscing about what once was you forget that your only seeing the highlights, the best bits. We very rarely take photos in the moments of sorrow. It's hard to get a good group shot when. half the group is fighting about something and you don't want to take photos of the nights in watching the telly.

But just because they're not evidenced doesn't mean they didn't happen. And that's what we need to remember when we say "things were better then" because they wernt, they were just different, And they wernt necessarily the best days of our lives. There was still pain and unhappiness and loneliness. The photos are just the happy moments of days gone by.

So if you find yourself stuck in that place, wishing you were back were you were take a moment to reflect on where you are now,

The new friends you've made, new loves you've found, new job, new house, new kids, new car. Newness! Brand spanking sparkly new things to make memories about. A new stage in your life with lessons to learn and people to meet.

AND if your really lucky, the truly important people from your past are still there too. And if they're not, they are where they were always meant to end up; As happy memories.


  1. you are an amazingly thoughtful person, baby. I love you.

  2. This is so true! Sometimes I spend too much time stuck in the "glory" days lol
