Look Back In Laissez-Faire
It's easy to look back on a situation long since gone and wish the moment could be recaptured. The thing is, those special times, those seemingly exquisite, glorious days of youth, when all was right with the world...they didn't exist.
It's easy to romanticize the past, to re-imagine it as something it never was...but that's wallowing in nostalgia, that's forgetting the day to day struggle of trying to fit in, of trying to feel like you belong.
The trick to enjoying the here and now is to get up everyday with the intention of creating moments that are as great as those you think you remember - but in the here and now.
