I’m currently in LA visiting family and came across some old journals and pictures that I had stored away in some random drawer. It’s always interesting to look back to see what kind of person you used to be and how you have changed over time. I remember I wasn’t a very good H.S. student or a community college student, but when I got into UCSC I was a double major honor student. I like to think that I’ve come a long way and have worked hard to get where I am today. I’m still not where I want to be yet but I know I’m on the right track and will hopefully be there soon.
If you haven’t looked back on your life in a while then I encourage you to do so. Pull out some old albums and journals and take a look at what sort of person you were years ago. Have you changed at all? Do you like where you are now? I’m sure we all learned some valuable lessons in life. In another 10 years I want to be able to look at photos from today and say, “I made the right choices in life to help me get to where I am.”
