Pay attention

When I woke up this morning, I saw the date on my calendar and I had to check it twice because I could not believe it was true.

Where did all those days go? How come we are so advanced into the year? Time flies and when we try to look back to see where did time go, we realise that we have completely lost track of it.

I cannot believe that ten years ago my life was completely different, my mentality was different and even my life style was different.

Many of my friends and people I worked with, are no longer among us.  When I began making a list of all the people who had left, I am amazed of how long the list has become. Where have all they gone?

Even my tastes and hobbies are no longer the same. I still enjoy many old things but my interests and activities have changed so much. Some of them in a radical way.

Yes, I am getting old but I do not feel old yet. Maybe time has passed so fast I didn´t have time to realise it.

But the more I analyse it, the more I realise that I missed out a whole decade of my life without being aware of it.

One day you wake up and your life is completely different and good friends and circumstances are gone for ever.

I am sure we all have in our mind, fond memories of good old times that we suddenly remember and make us feel nostalgic.

No matter how hard some periods are, there will always be moments, details, people, and so on, that will fill our hearts with a warm feeling in the future.

Our brain is a super computer that keeps comparing and evaluating everything around us all the time. Besides all the other things the brain has to do to keep us alive. So we actually are not aware of all the impressive processes our brain has to perform 24/7.

But as ironic as it sounds, Life gives us strange ways sometimes for us to compare and set new reference points in and learn our lessons, many times the hard way.

Sometimes you get tired of your own town, city, country, etc. So you decide to travel. Then you see new things, you meet new people with new customs, you try new food and so on. After a while, you begin to compare those new experiences with your home and then you begin to feel nostalgic and begin feeling the wish to go back. Continue reading
