I signed into my blog today with intentions of posting something but before I did, I had to make some site updates. So while those updates where being pushed through, I decided to go look at some older files I had started but never finished or finished and never posted and you get the idea.
In doing so, I found myself falling deep into a rabbit hole full of memories.
I found writing samples written by a completely different woman who after more time, I wondered if my computer had been hijacked. I didn’t recognize the words being written or this person talking. I found old emails of story ideas and conversations had with friends who I reached out to so they could enjoy the memory as well and have a good laugh.
I shook my head at some of the stories I came across and am thankful I never posted them. I am still shaking my head at them now. Good lord, lol.
Life five years ago was so very different than what it is now.
I was a different mother, wife and friend than what I am today.
In some areas I have grown by leaps and bounds and in others, fallen behind.
Regardless of the direction, I feel like I am in a place today that while not perfect given our current state of the world, it is a good place for me. I am comfortable in my own skin and life is good.
I wasn’t a perfect mom but I feel like my kids find I am cool enough that they text me for silly stuff or share the latest and greatest meme. I love that we all have the same sense of humor.
My hubby loves that I have some of the best typo’s in our text conversations. Here is an oldie but goodie.
I don’t feel the need to keep up with friends who don’t keep up with me. I am done with one sided friendships and chasing people. (I have a post on this…)
I am eating right, except when I am not. I tend to eat my feelings even more these days which personally, I feel is a far better reaction than some others.
I am not a huge fan of this whole getting older bit and my body is reminding me that I actually do have to pay a bit more attention to what I do eat and drink which I HATE but it saves me later from feeling like crap.
All that said, traveling down memory lane has been just what I needed today.
Love and hugs!
