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!

  1. It’s interesting looking back, isn’t it? It always amazes me how we grow and change and adapt and figure things out that work best for us and our families.

  2. I think I wake up almost daily with all the good intentions of just sitting down and writing something… get that blog you worked so hard on up and running, but then Life Happens. As it should I suppose, thus I’ve been just rolling with it. Some days I still have the Oh No!! moment that I deleted my old blog. I saved some of my favourite posts, but as you say…. the memories are so good!! It was a really positive time that probably saved my sanity lol. Even with 3 teens in the house right now, I am going to find more ways to make space for those things I enjoy again. By some miracle lol

    1. God bless you having three teens! and yes, life happens and we have to just let go of things for a spell not because we don’t love it but something has to give to make room for more important stuff at that time. You’re doing great and your poems and photography have always been my favorites!

      Thanks for stopping by my friend, really great to see you over here 🙌

  3. Awww I love when this happens ❤️ It’s funny to find half written posts or jumbled thoughts and wonder how they got there and who that person was who had them. Also this is a good reminder that I should really clear out some of my blog posts drafts 😊 hope you’re having a great weekend!

  4. Thank you Charlotte, weekend was wonderful. COVID has provided me with time to do so much cleaning this year and I must confess, its feels really good! Here is to a great week!
