I was one who always lived in the past, I also thought about the “good ol’ days” and how things once were. But truth be told those days will never happen again, they are gone. While it might be fun to think back about those times, they are gone. You can’t focus on how things once were, as I said they won’t happen again. You can try to learn from them and rebuild something similar to what you once had, but it won’t be exactly what you had. And why would you want it to be the same? If it was so good what happen to it? Why did you stop having that life? Take off those graduation googles and truly think how you felt during those times, was it really as good as you thought?
I’ve talked before when times I wouldn’t leave my house because I would talk myself out of it, those times I lost a lot business wise and personally. Now when I know something is going on, I do my best to make sure I’m there. When I was at my peak of performing well in life, I would show up for everything, I would never miss a work event, a personal event, nothing. It was burning the candle hot and fast, but when you are used to that kind of lifestyle you have the endurance. Hardly ever would I crash and I never felt overwhelmed. To me it was my norm. Now that things have slowed done, it is hard to get that endurance back, but I still always try go to places and meet up with people when asked.
