old clothes..

I don't know why, but lately I have been running into a lot of "old" things. Old boxes in the garage that contain my childhood...Old bins of clothes, that I can't believe I thought I was fat when I was wearing them..Mia's old baby clothes..and then today I ran across this little dress in the one tub. I remember Mia in this dress...She was a chubby baby and she filled this dress out so cute. I loved it.

I look at her now and find it so hard to believe that yes, she was once this small. And then I remember that she was that small, and remember thinking, Oh my gosh, I can't even imagine her going to school, growing up, starting to have her strong opinion about things and her outfits.

I've realized a lot lately going through all of this "stuff", that it really is true...Time goes so fast. The older you get, the faster it goes. I've realized you can choose to pick up the pace and keep up, or stay behind and think about all the things you didn't do and should have.

So I've decided to pick up the pace. This is just a way of me saying it out loud. I know it's going to be hard to accomplish what I want, but I've realized that it will be all so worth it in the end. I've gotten back in touch with an old friend. Someone that has known me since I was little. She has now become my inspiration. Just in case you're reading this, thank you. Thank you for saying the words you have to kick me in the ass. I love you and will always, always be here for you.
