Stuck In the 70s . . . Not!
I don't know about the rest of you, but I am SO GLAD that I'm not the same person that I was in high school! If time had been frozen in the 70s, I would have died! I was so shy, and so unsure of myself. I had no opinions. No self-confidence. Not to mention my hair!!! Yikes! Have you ever thought of some of the stupid things you did as a teenager? Sometimes blindly following your friends, or sometimes thoughtlessly leading the pack. I think we all did silly, stupid things simply because we were young. Things that, as adults with more experience and knowledge and more brain function, we look back at now and think, "What an idiot!! What was I thinking??!"
Well, that's what this life is all about . . . learning and growing and becoming better. We learn from text books, we learn from life experiences, we learn (hopefully) from our mistakes, we learn from each other. There shouldn't be a day that goes by that we don't learn . . . something! Anything! And then take from those lessons the things that will help us be better, kinder, more compassionate, better citizens, better children, more grateful . . . more happy!
So Yea for growing and learning!!
But now . . . back to the 70s - - the most forgettable time of my existence. If it weren't for wax lips and Styx, the 70s would have been a complete waste of my time :)
Anyway, go learn something new today and report back!
