Returning to my hometown, where I spent the first 22 years of my life, stirred up a mix of emotions. I knew that time would have undoubtedly left its mark on the places I once knew so well, but I secretly hoped the changes wouldn't be as drastic as they turned out to be.
I realize it's naive to expect things to remain unchanged, especially when they're left without much care. Everything crumbles under the weight of time, eventually existing only as memories.
And that's okay, I guess.
I'm not here to dwell on the past! Instead, I'm here to appreciate the life I'm currently living and the opportunities and joys that life has to offer me now. I'm here to honor my past without being trapped in it, and to embrace my present. That's where I have the opportunity to create meaningful memories for the future.
