These Are The Good Ole Days


I am sitting here at a public access wireless location and can't help but listen to some of the conversations going on around me. One group of senior citizens is talking about "the good ole days" with a touch of whimsy in their voices. Makes you long for days gone by, right? Not exactly.

Do you feel that your best days have passed you by? If so, why? Usually when I hear people talk about "the good ole days" the talk is centered around experiences they had as youngsters. Maybe they had the strength and mind capacity to accomplish great things, things they can only dream about doing today.

I do not believe that there really is such a thing as "the good ole days." Sure, circumstances of our lives change and not always for the better, but do we have to be ruled by our experiences instead of looking forward to that which lies ahead?

Charles Dickens said, "these are the best of times, these are the worst of times." Truly, if we are honest about it some of "the good ole days" were not really that good. Yes, at one time you were young and possessed a physical strength that any senior citizen would envy. However, do you recall how little your salary was during that time, how you struggled to pay the mortgage, or recall other personal struggles that later in life seem so insignificant? I bet you do!

We all need perspective with our lives, and it often takes a lifetime or a life well lived to be able to appreciate what we have now. The days gone by certainly could have been good for you, but that doesn't mean today cannot be good as well. Unless you have lost the will to live!
