today my mom decided to take her boyfriends son and i to the park.
i can't lie i was excited and that might seem odd for the age we're in, in which electronics dominate every aspect of our lives especially social media.
however in that park i had the best memories. it was in those days where my problems were so small and i bought my old ipod with me which coincidentally hadn't been updated in forever.
anyways as i swung back and forth i remember being in middle school and swinging with my best friend and having competitions as to who can swing the highest and her dad teaching us both how to get a high swing. i shared these memories with my mom's boyfriends son and it kinda came alive.
the time i went before was after this amazing concert with my new best friend and it made me think of how much things really change.
let's put it this way
the last time i was on that swing i was maybe 13 or 14 and my best friend was sitting next to me and we listened to our ipods and unplugged ourselves from the world.
i was no longer friends with the person i called my best friend. i was wearing a concert t-shirt from an artist i just met my first famous person and i had an entirely different best friend.
it seemed odd how much one place can hold so many memories. it honestly made me miss those days. i listened to music and it made me reflect on so many things. it makes me sick swinging to be honest but i've been going on the swings for such a long time that i ignore it and i allow the wind to blow past my face and let every song lyric hit me. it feels nice.
my point is things change a lot of things can change from one day to another but your memories never do. of course they fade but they never change and you can't live in them but sometimes it's okay to. i lived in that moment with my best friend i don't think it'll ever be the same but it was something i didn't think much of that now i do.
cherish everything even the small things because sometimes their the things that keep you together.
it's odd how much a old swing set can hold so many lessons and bring me closer to myself but it did, it honestly did.
