My dad, sister, and I went to TACO BELL.. and I forgot how much I love that fast food place. Hahah. I got the beefy 5 layer burrito. WITH SOME YUMMY MOUNTAIN DEW. I am so bad.. I used to NEVER drink caffeine. Whoops. I might need to reiterate some resolutions for the new year. Lol.
But, when we were at Taco Bell.. I was reminded of my best friend who always loved to go to there for lunch. Hahah. He was kind of obsessed for a little bit, I think. We had tons of fun buying those Baja Blast slushy things. Hahah.
THE HUMAN MIND IS SO CRAZY. This one random and generic fast food restaurant in my town.. brought back tons of memories of my best friend. It's the same way when I look at old Instagram posts, or watch my old YouTube videos.. OR even just looking at pictures from two months ago. So not only can I remember a distinct time in my life.. BUT I CAN FEEL THOSE SAME EMOTIONS.
Life changes so rapidly.. and I don't want to forget. Obviously, the past is the past.. and I'm not STUCK in the past. (Or, at least I am not trying to be that way.) I absolutely love the present and I am so excited for the future..
BUT, there is something special about the past.. There is something special about looking back and seeing how far you have come. I can see more clearly how beautiful life is.. and how God guides me through out it all. I have so many things to be grateful for! We grow.. we progress.. it's amazing.
I am super sentimental right now.. I guess all I have to say is don't live with regrets. Live life to the fullest and DOCUMENT IT. This could mean writing in a journal, taking pictures, anything..!
Your life is a gift from God and He wants the best for you always. Don't every forget that.
XOXO. --Alec Marie
