Life's got me thinking

Recommended Posts

So I'm sitting here listening to Graduation Song, and it's making me think about a lot of things. Things like how no matter what we do, we're never going to get back the day that we just ended. No matter what we do, it's always going to be in the past. Just a bunch of memories.


And Forever is short. I know I've said to a couple friends "We're going to be best friends forever!" and whenever I think of when I said that, little echo's of laughter float around my brain, with memories of smiles and billions of laughs...and then I remember how we drifted apart. We only talk maybe once a month now. All those good memories...are just memories. We're probably not going to have any more good times. That "Best Friend Forever" is in the past. One of my short forevers.


In a couple years, I'm probably not even going to remember my kindergarten teachers name. I'll be sitting in a cafe somewhere with a completely new friend, and I won't even stop to think of all my friends from elementary school. In fact, right now I rarely ever stop and think of my friends of elementary. They're in the past too, just a bunch of memories. When I go back and talk to a friend or two from elementary, there's not that much to talk about. We have separate lives now, different friends that we don't know about. Insiders that we don't understand. Good times we haven't shared. Memories of the past are all we have.


We change so much, 5 years from now, I won't like the same music, I won't like the same type of guy. I probably won't be living in the same place. Sometime in the next 2-3 years, I'll be moving out, having to support myself. No more spending money carelessly without having to look at price tags. I'll have to worry about monthly payments, clothes I have to buy, and how to feed myself. There's just so much to think about.


I don't want to think anymore.

Gosh i feel like you all the time! Exactly the same. I guess we just gotta realise that life does that and theres nothing we can do to stop whats happeneing and we can't slow things down and we can't make things ok and better. It just doesn't happen like that. We can either accept it or deny it. If we deny it we are gonna get hurt and proboly hurt others down the track. Life is full of changes most for the better but sometimes you gotta lost some of the good stuff to get some even better things.. Don't know but yeah if you accept whats going on then maybe you can work with it instead of against it Sorry don't really know what to say cuz i know exactly what you mean but i guess we just gotta live it.

hey mate.


yeah. it can be quite overwhelming sometimes when you think about all your experiences, and how some things have changed, and how these changes have affected the way you view life. people come and go so quickly. hah, i just realised two years ago, i had heaps of mates, and was totally outgoing, now, it's the exact opposite. but what the hey, life goes on! let our good and not so good experiences be a source of strength and wisdom. we have to seize and enjoy life...carpe diem!
