The Good Old Days
In the series finale of The Office, Andy Bernard says “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days, before you’ve actually left them.”
As time passes by, we look back at a period of our life and revel in how lovely it was. It’s fun to reminisce, but what if we could remain in the ‘good old days?’
Through practices of meditation and gratitude, we can get much better at paying attention to what is around us; and by doing so, it makes it quite difficult to not feel like we’re living in a golden age.
Mondays don’t suck. Rainy days don’t suck. Setbacks don’t suck…
They only suck as much as we allow them to dictate our happiness. All are inevitable. All are opportunities.
We can choose to be in the good old days now; that way we don’t have to wait to look back and appreciate them.
