Lately, well not so much lately, but more often than before I’ve been extremely nostalgic.  I’ve always had a thing for the olden days, but I think with my son getting older and growing so fast, its hit me more than ever. Everyday, I’m reminded by how fast time flies and that in just the blink of an eye things can change.  Sometimes they change for the good and other times, well they just change.

Things I Miss |

Things I miss…

  1. Being a kid
  2. College days
  3. Having no responsibility
  4. My parents being together
  5. My military career
  6. Being financially stable
  7. Living in our own house
  8. Travelling
  9. Not having anxiety or being stressed
  10. Fall t.v. (summer tv always sucks, bring on the Fall season)
  11. All of my cute clothes.  – Most of them are in storage.

Some of these may be superficial, but others are close to my heart.  Its hard sometimes to leave the past in the past or be frustrate with where you’re at, but I’ve learned in my frustration for where I’m at now, is you have to be thankful for the good times.  We’re given the good times, so that when things aren’t so good, when have something to remember or a gleamer of hope that they will get better.  Things can always be worst, but they will always get better!

That’s a promise!

  1. I feel you, mom to mom. I also miss these things. It seems like we can do and have everything without our kids but I tell you, it’s so much more than fun to have them while doing and having the things we miss so much. And between everything we miss, we find solutions to our own dilemmas while watching our own families grow.

    1. I couldn’t agree more! I have to say that having my son and getting to experience things with him and see him grow and develop every is so fulfilling. Its just so crazy how the time flies. And I love your thoughts on finding solutions. That’s such a positive and comforting approach to be nostalgic and accepting our kids getting older. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts! 🙂

  2. It was extremely nice when there were no responsibility. I for one can not wait for fall. I’ve usually been a summer person but over the last few years I’ve gotten out of it. I haven’t made it to the beach this year. Happy Tuesday!

    1. I know right?! I have to admit that I might be ready for the holidays, not so much fall though, lol! Although my son’s birthday is in the fall, so of course I’m stoked for that. Maybe if it were 70 degrees everyday in the fall and winter I’d be more ready for it. I’m really hoping to be able to make it to the beach myself next year. Its been too long since I’ve been! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. It’s funny – lately I’ve so missed being in my 20’s. I don’t usually miss it but there was something about it. I had no anxiety. I was more fearless.
    In some ways, I’m stronger now but fall makes me miss all of the previous stages.

    1. I totally get you on that! I think when we’re young we don’t have much to loose. No husband, no kids, no responsibilities (for the most part) and its so easy to trolly along in life with no worries. Age bring wisdom and so many experiences, but youth is refreshing and green. I guess that’s why we experience both in life…to give us a balance.

  4. I miss living on our own, we live with my mother for various reasons and it’s hard… Two generations just don’t get along well. I miss USA, more specifically FL weather and our friends who are there. I miss some things from USA that aren’t available here. I miss summer, even though it’s not over yet (but we had lots of colder days and rain more like autumn than summer).

    1. Ana, I know exactly how you feel, because we live with my mother too. Fortunately, we all get along and my mother and I are very close, but I still wish we had our own place. There’s something about the value of privacy that really means a lot to my husband and I. When I lived up north, I always missed the weather down here in the south, so I totally get you on that. I hate cold weather and the winters seemed so long up there!
