I’ve always been too nostalgic. Too much reverence for the past. I wouldn’t say I “live” in the past, because I definitely take in each present moment and try to enjoy every experience given to me… but my mind always wanders back. That’s natural though, right? The past is what we know, so of course that’s where our thoughts would go?
I guess to a certain extent, I do live too much in, or for, the past. And then, I let the way I see the future be affected by that. I’m afraid of the past becoming further and further, of losing “the past”. I need to stop this. Wasn’t the “past” you grip on so tightly to, at some point a “future”. Be nostalgic, for what’s ahead.
Don’t give too much weight to what has preceded, that would imply you’re nearing or at the end. We are only just beginning.
(Post that contradicts everything said here to come later -_-“)
nostalgia related.. I recently purchased BSB newest album. It’s actually quite good. I felt like after going all these yrs, I should show some support for what they’ve provided me. Something about them sticking together too is significant to me. While on that page, there was a package to get ALL their previous albums for like $25. Considering I napster’d/kazaa’d a good portion of their songs in hs, I owe it to them to buy them now that I can afford to (and hell, it’s only $5 a cd). So somehow my Amazon cart ended up looking like this on a random sunday night…
