a touch of nostalgia

  1. Tell me, what do you miss the most in your life right now. Can be silly, serious, profound.

    I miss my youth. I threw it away trying to grow up way too quickly, with way too many responsibilities. I would dearly love to go back to being 16 again, and know what I know now. I would hit the books very hard instead of just hangin' out in school, getting by the easiest way possible. When I see kids today wasting their lives, I wish I could convince them to go a different way, but no one could convince me.

    I echo Jon sentiments! Not necessarily my youth... but I could have completely my nursing degree right after High School instead I chose to drop out and "find myself" Well guess what I'm right back where I started from.. and it's sooooo much harder now with children, husband, work! So if anything.. that is what I miss..and then there are those times when I sit at home and just reflect on the past.. what could have been...If I had made diffrent choices...chosen different path....

    Then you wonder where has the time gone! Ah.. but I'll save that for my therapist! LOL

    On a silly note I miss my size 3 figure! I miss that 6 pack stomach, those breast and butt you could bounce a quarter off! That I really really miss!

    Ditto Brenda! I wish I hadn't missed out on going away to college straight after high school, I wasn't sure what I wanted then & never got the opportunity again...

    Miss my parents and sisters <with lots of dysfunctional love lol> I was "so ready" to be on my own a few years back, but I miss the days of coming home to them (and mom's food!)

    also miss the days when my friends & I would eat fast food all the time after school, and it never showed :chuckle

    It was awfully nice to believe that everyone is who they say they are, has your best interests at heart, and that everything always turns out for the best...

    Plus there's the whole rootbeer popsicle thing...

    And Coke in the curvy bottle with the bottlecap, so cold it has ice crystals on a long hot lazy day...

    And the wonder of a whole library full of books that I haven't read and can check out as many as I want...and have time to read them all...

    Talking on the phone for HOURS about nothing.

    Being able to spend the entire day at the swimming pool, be in the water so long you get wrinkly and have it be fun ALL DAY LONG.

    Visiting my grandparents' house and getting eggs in the quite, dusty straw-smelling henhouse with all the chickens staring at you with those beady black eyes...

    Climbing into a big pine tree and playing house or spies and never once noticing there's sap all over you.

    I miss my Bubbie & Grandpa, with them speaking Yiddish in front of me so that I wouldn't understand what they were talking about

    And this may sound crazy, but I miss being pregnant & I miss breastfeeding. Maybe one day...

    I miss hangin out with my mom. Wish she would of been able to see her first grandchild go to her first dance, and sing a song she wrote at her graduation from high school. I miss getting together for big family Christmas's when the kids were little and still believed. I also miss being pregnant, it's hard knowing that will never happen again.
