Sometimes, just sometimes okay, all the time I get wrapped up in nostalgic memories.

-Packing up my room
-Going through old clothes
-Looking through old school stuff
-Reading my old kid's books (oh, hello Little House on the Prairie)
-Looking at old pictures
-Watching movies from when I was a kid (Love you forever Disney!)
-Music from when I was a kid
-Food from when I was a kid

.... and I am still pretty much a kid.

When this happens, as it often does, I have to remember to pause and realize that life right now is even better. And that there is still so much to look forward to.

Then I neatly fold and put everything back (or change the channel/station), stand up, and go live my life.

I don't want to be Lot's wife.  Because it's good to look back, but not want to go back.


  1. i love that pic, and nostalgia gets me all the time. you are so darling! i just love you!

  2. i think i can use this as a reminder one or two times a day. president monson said something i always really liked:

    "Sometimes we let our thoughts of tomorrow take up too much of today. Daydreaming of the past and longing for the future may provide comfort, but will not take the place of living in the present. This is the day of opportunity."


    thanks for the post!

  3. You are so right. Sometimes I'd think it would be nice to go back and redo everything but why would I want to go through the same trials? I wouldn't be the same person I am today.

  4. I really love this.
    I think about that sometimes.
    But what I then do is think about the bad stuff, because we always get nostalgic and sad when we think about the good. That might sound pessimistic but it's really not.

    You're sweet Michelle.

  5. What would one learn if they can change all their mistakes? I'm glad there's no time machine that's capable of doing such a things.


Leave some love! (I'd love if you did)
