Bit of Happy #104: Old Stomping Grounds

18 Feb

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”
-Nelson Mandela

This quote reminds me of times in my life when I have returned to places I once spent a lot of time. Memories flood into the forefront of my mind. Of things that had happened. Of who I was in those moments. Of people who meant a lot to me. And it also makes me realize how much I have changed since that moment. Sometimes those changes were leaps and bounds towards becoming a better person. And other times those changes where I initially fell short and made mistakes, I picked myself back up and learned. Grew stronger. More intelligible. Greater confidence.

Does the same thing happen to you when you return to places that you hadn’t been to in years?

Do you find yourself comparing who you are now from then?
