Looking Back

Life is both a gift and at some points in time a curse. When we have something to live for be it, family, a job or just the freedom to do what we want to do when we want to do it. Life is indeed good. As we get older there is a point where our future becomes not looking forward to better things but examining our past life experiences, and if possible maintaining our health both mental and physical. We all have regrets about events especially related to relationships that turned out unsatisfactorily.  That is a reality we have to face as we age. The problem is the petty things we get angry about without really thinking of ways to resolve them because of that anger. The world now has Facebook and other social media outlets to vent that anger without thinking it out which only makes things worse.

As we age there will be a time when the only thing we have left will be our memories of people and past events. Alzheimer’s disease may be the minds way of forgetting past hurts and disappointments. The time to work on the good times of life begins in our youth where we first learn from family and then peers. Those lessons will lead to either  the happiness and fulfillment we all seek and deserve. Or a life of misery, failure, and disappointment. We are all given a choice at the beginning of our lives which direction we take. It is said that youth is wasted on the young. I now understand the meaning of that statement. Looking back I can say the good memories I have far outweighed the bad. That is something we all need to consider as we age.

About serius1058

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
