“Things aren’t what they used to be and probably never were.”
-Will Rogers, American cowboy, vaudeville performer, and film actor
It is not uncommon for people to romanticize the good old days. Just take a look at the photo albums, yearbooks, and memory banks from which we cherry-pick the choice moments when all was right with the world.
We all share the experience of “selective memory,” in which we remember some things quite vividly, and others not at all. Take a look at the stories you continue to tell – often to the chagrin of your significant others – when you’re out on the town!
How can you make the very most of your life from this point forward, by living by the idea that these are the good old days, and the best is still to come?
