Where has time gone?!

Recently it has occurred to me that so much time has gone by. Since forever. My dad is FIFTY. There are pictures of him dated from the '60s. That's just crazy. I'm 20. TWENTY. My mother had her first kid at 22. There is no way. Then, my brother is stinking 26! He lives on his own in Destin, Florida. Jon is freaking almost 23! I still think of him as my brother that watched me after school and practiced sports with me in the yard. Now they're both grown!

HOLY COW.

Anyway, I was thinking back to three years ago. Can you remember what you were doing today three years ago? That's just crazy to think about. It took me a while to figure it out, too.

Anyway, that's why I chose this picture for today. It was taken by my friend who lives in Windsor, Ontario right across the water from Detroit. This picture was taken about three years ago right after we met.

Honestly, the picture has nothing to do with the post other than its date. My point today is that time goes by so quickly. Three years ago I was in high school. I thought my life was awful, things were so hard, I hated school, blah blah blah. Now I look back and see it as nothing. Just a mile stone that I am happy to have accomplished.

My mom keeps making fun of me for repeating, "holy cow, dad is FIFTY" over and over, but I just haven't registered it yet. So much wisdom and history has taken place in that time. Even the past 20 years have been full of love, hate, war, and deaths. We live history each day, so we should make the best of it.

I want to look back on when I was 20 and be happy of what I've accomplished. I want to really notice a change in my life. I want to be better than I am today. And I want you all to join me on this journey.
