The Good Old Days

At a recent family dinner, we were talking about our childhoods, and I said that my childhood in the ’70s and early ’80s was quite different from our children’s, who are now 22, 20, and 18.

We had so much more time to be bored. We did not have iPhones, streaming services, and constant access to entertainment. Heck, we did not even have a VCR—and we had to get off the couch to change the TV channel because our TV did not come with a remote control.

Some would say these were the good old days, when life was simpler.

But were they?

No matter how old we are, we say that times gone by were the good old days.

Fast forward 20 years, and the life we are living now will be the good old days.

What are we doing today to make these the good old days?

There are moments of “wow” everywhere. Are we looking for them?

We waste too much time with “what ifs” and “should haves” that we miss out on living right now.

Wherever we are right now is where we are supposed to be, creating the good old days.

These are the good old days. Let’s make the most of them.
