This is ya boy (on the left) back in 93' sun. Peep the bright ass windbreaker creeping through the black triple phat goose with the Guess denim tucked in the Vasque hiking boots. On my right is my brotha' Courtney with his denim digs tucked in his Vasque hiking boots as well! Damn we were on some Das EFX B.S. but these were the good ole days...the carefree days! The fun and non-responsible days that I miss so much!
As kids we were always in such a rush to grow up and become adults. Now that I'm an adult I wish I could go back to being a kid and live off my mama' on them! Man, it's crazy how life changes us and how our thoughts yearn for more nostalgic days once we get older and have to take on real life responsibilities. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for all the blessings God has bestowed upon me and my family but sometimes life can be overwhelming and that's when I start reflecting on my days of young!
Today I was sent the picture above and it brought back hella' memories! Things I had forgotten about and realized I missed after taking a walk down memory lane. I recalled some of my travels in life and how much of the world I've seen being a military brat and touring musically. I thought about all the faces and people I've met and shook hands with. I thought about the people I became close friends and how they impacted my life forever. I thought about all of this and suddenly realized that these important times and people have vanished from my life without a trace. Why does this happen? If it weren't for social networking sites I may not have ever been in contact with some of the people I've met along my journey. What was/is the purpose of meeting these people if they were going to just disappear in years to come? Life is can sometimes be one big ole question mark. I need answers damn it!
Where does the time go and how can we capture these special moments forever?! There are times and people I miss dearly that I will never get back. I only wish that I would have appreciated these times and the people I've had fun with when I was in the moment with them. You don't realize until it's over that these moments will be the moments you'll want to have back in years to come! It sucks man...it's not fair! Such is life?
Anyhow, I guess my point is this: Love your life and cherish the little things cause time is not on our side and one day all the B.S. won't mean so much to you. The things that will mean the most to you are your friends and your family (and the time you've spent with them). Cherish the day!
