Day before yesterday I thought of this “Y” but that was a busy day. Yesterday was our “Wandering Photographers” morning and then I took a loooonnnnng nap after we returned. Isn’t it amazing how quickly the yesterdays pile up. Somewhere in our 40’s we realize that we have more yesterdays than we have tomorrows. We shift from thinking about how long we have been alive to wondering how long we have to live. We begin to wonder if time is running out.
One of the advantages of having a lot of yesterdays, is that I have a lot of memories. Not that I live in the past – it’s just that so many things trigger memories of things I’ve done, places I’ve been, experiences I’ve had. My memories are good company in my quiet moments, bringing a smile to my face and a giggle to my soul.
I am ready to face a new day while hanging on to my yesterdays. Not all of them were good yesterdays, but I think I’ve forgiven those who have made yesterdays painful. I’ve also forgiven myself for the mistakes I made in the long ago yesterdays. I wish I could say I would do things differently if I were given another chance – but I don’t think I would. I did the best I could, with who I was, and where I was at the time. I was “good enough”. Now I have things to do with my new day.
Good morning sun. Thank you for a wonderful yesterday.
And thank you Frizz for another week of challenges. To see more “Y” interpretations go to:
