There are a few moments in your life when you are truly happy and you remember to give thanks. A good thing happened to me today. I was going through my Facebook and a thought struck me.. why not make use of the history option and revisit the old posts and pictures. Well, my reminiscence can be described accurately in two words : Embarrassing but nonetheless, nostalgic. From the phase when “I uSeD tO wRitE LyK DiS” to tagging all my friends into a random ‘Friends’ pictures. All that stuff travels through the million miles and the memories come back. It may sound lame now but quintessentially, those are the things that used to define us at that time probably. Those cute love statuses you wrote for your loved ones might fluster you now and the long cliché-d(if that’s even a word) birthday wishes we used to write for our best friends, the comment fights, the hate statuses(those are still in fashion, right?).
It’s strange how we hold on to the pieces of the past while we wait for our future, but it is very important that we do so. Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson : you find the present tense and past perfect(And that’s one clever quote. I need to remember this one). It is a necessary thing, I believe, and a way for all of us to find peace in that we have accomplished, or even failed to accomplish.
People in those crazy, cute, adorable pictures might have moved away from us or might have gotten busy but the amazing memories that they have given us, the footprints they’ve left on our lives ..they don’t wither away easily. Those old pictures and old posts also brings out memories of people who are no more substantial in our lives but played a huge part in making us who we are today. Here’s a big cheers to folks who helped me make memories, whether we’re in touch or not, where ever you are today.. I wish you the best for life.
