Recently a friend posted a question asking "
I was emailing Anthony the other morning (we kind of have email “chats” on some
days) and I shared with him this post and
told him ”I know that, for me, there is nothing here that could bring
me that feeling, so it’s sad. The summer nights here are so humid that
no one really wants to be outdoors, there’s no relief from the heat like
there was in Phoenix. The friends I have now are totally different than
back then. Anyone who knew me “back then” is no longer even a little
part of my life and I’ve grown so far beyond wanting them back (even the
family) that it would be more awkward than anything.”
This is what he wrote back to me:
but on the bright side, you started your business despite all of the
non-nostalgia. you are living your dream without the “good ol’ day”
feeling. Maybe your “Good Ol’ Days” are the ones your living right now.
And in 20 years, you’ll look back and say “yes, those were my golden
years. They may have been late, but they were the best years of my life”
I’m in tears right now for how awesome this kid is!
