good motto, I look back at pictures and go did I really wear that???????? but generally they have all captured a great moment. Sometimes tho, I wish i could take myself back there in time and relive it.. just because I missed out on capturing something. Its always better in hindsight, amazing where life takes you!

When I look back, I always laugh at where I thought I’d be when I was my current age. Love your motto πŸ™‚

I never liked video cameras, but I got a videographer for our wedding day, it maybe just the start of our video era. Good idea to register one!

I havent done my register yet.. I should my wedding is just the week before yours. Are you ahead in the planning stakes or am I behind on this one? πŸ™‚

Exactly! We should all remember to breathe & go with the flow. I’m turning 25 in October and am having a quarter of a century party. Plan on having people wear ugly “grandma” sweaters too.

@Virgina – Absolutely. My sister is 16, so I always think what I thought I was going to be like at 24 when I was 16. I was sure I’d be married and with a baby (or at least be pregnant in the near future) with a house and a car and a little white fence. Haha! I suppose 24 sounded really old to me when I was 16! I am definitely working on enjoying life at every stage/moment too. Telling myself I’ll love my body when I’m 15 pounds lighter doesn’t make for a happy girl!

I do this all the time with photos!  I distinctly remember thinking, “Ew, I look so ugly/tired/sickly/fat/awkward/WHATEVER in this photo!” when I was 15, 16, 17, 18…now I look back on those photos and think, what was I on?!  I wish I could look that good now!  Like my senior photos, which were taken when I was 16.  I hated them SO MUCH when they were taken, hated my mom for buying such an expensive package and hanging them everywhere, but now I really like them (although they make me feel a bit wistful for when I was younger, cuter, and thinner).  But I must be weird because I never really thought about where I’d be in 2 or 5 or 10 years.  So I can’t compare how things turned out with how I expected them to. πŸ™

Watch what you eat to be healthy not to be skinny. We all have a weight where our bodies are naturally “happy”…its higher for some and lower for some. In college I was about 10 pounds lighter than I am now, but I was working out all the time & really limiting what I ate. My quality of life (short term & long term) and health is really important to me!

“For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – Real Life.
But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through fiirst,
some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid.

At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness.
Happiness is the way.

So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination!”

@ Virginia – Hey! I was expecting to get on here and see a crazy pic of you or something!! LOL. I was reading and I was like “uh oh, on a keg at her birthday party” but when I scrolled down the post ended πŸ˜›

I know what you mean though. When I was in middle school, I thought I looked so awkward and ugly, then when I got to high school and found pics of me from middle school, I was like OMG I was so skinny & had GREAT skin (something I do NOT have anymore).

What I hated, was when I was a LOT bigger (60 lbs bigger) several years ago, and people would see a thin pic of me from HS and go “That’s you?! That doesn’t even LOOK like you!” Well, those comments really helped to motivate me back in the day and now I am much smaller and apparently more recognizable πŸ™‚

@ sulli – I love the quote!

I love looking at pictures from early college, as girls were still wearing shirts that just hit at the waistband … or higher. It makes me giggle (and want to do sit ups Cool)
