Tagged Y: Yesterday

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.

Good morning, Evening Primrose. Yesterday was your day.

Good morning, Evening Primrose. Yesterday was your day.

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.

Good morning, New Dawn Rose.

Good morning, New Dawn Rose.

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, sunshine.

Good morning, sunshine.

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:

  1. It’s nice being comfortable with who/where you are. Even though some of my yesterdays were rotten, I don’t think I’d do them differently, either. “I did the best I could, with who I was, and where I was at the time,” and it’s gotten me to where I am 🙂

  3. Love your photo of the white daisies. I’ve never been successful with photographing that flower – probably too many blooms in the frame.

    (Forget the yesterdays, they’re Past. Don’t think about the Tomorrows, they haven’t arrived. Just live in the Moment. Enjoy each precious moment of Today and you’ll soon feel much better).

    • I forgot to say that the 50mm lens gives me great options for depth of field. Thanks for visiting and especially for your comments.
