Thinking Back

Just sitting here thinking back to when life was simple and there were no restrictions on anything that we could, or couldn’t do. It makes me wonder where all of the time went during those years. I guess time moved on as we grew with it without even batting an eye. When I think about when I was growing up, it seemed as it I was never going to get grown, now I wish I could be a kid again, but without the wearing of the masks.

I remember when I would be playing outside with my sister, brother, and cousins having fun. I couldn’t wait for Saturday mornings to go to town, that was my favorite day next to going to church on Sundays. As I take a trip down memory lane, listening to my favorite sounds, it is as if I am reliving every moment. It is as if I can see everything again, such as the sun shining, meat smoking, listening to music, dancing, laughing and having fun getting ready to go out on the town. Oh, my goodness! Those were the days! I was very happy then, but now, not so much. Life and time have changed me a lot. I do not have a lot of patience as I once had. Don’t get me wrong though, I still like to have fun, and I do.

I thought that once the nest was empty, I would do some of the things I wanted to do, but that didn’t happen the way I thought it would. Depression took a toll on me, and then anxiety stepped in. I am alright though, I guess this is why I created my playlist with some of the music I listened to before all of this began to take me back to happier times in my life. At this very moment I am very happy, and my voice is still as perfect as ever. It is still strong just as it was when I was very young, I can still hit the notes like I did before when I first started singing. I just may record myself one day just to listen to myself, I may even post it for everyone to hear, now, that is something I would expect to receive comments, and likes on. Before that happens, I have to retrain my voice because I do not sing as much as I did before, just when I feel like it, like right now.

I enjoy my life to the fullest. I love thinking back to the good ole days. Whatever you do, don’t forget to think back to the fun times you had when you were very young, and as you grew older. Until next time, deuces. ©2022
