How long is 10 years? For some, 10 years is a long time, perhaps most of your life. Or to others 10 years is not all that long. And to people like our grandparents, 10 years is the time it takes to get up and do that project they wanted to do. Well today I thought it was such a beautiful day outside today, so I opened up my windows and door to let the wind blow in. And as I worked, Aromas found there way into my home and gave me flashbacks. Funny how smells can do that. And this kind of smell can often make me think one thing, which can be rather silly. “SEGA” And now I remember. It is exactly 10 years ago since I was in Nevada, getting ready to graduate High School. Has it been that long so soon?
I find myself remembering what it was like in my childhood. Remembering how awesome things were, that’s what this fresh spring air is doing to me. It’s making me remember. The kinds of adventures I had with my dogs. And my brother had friends that had something called a Sega Genesis and discovering Sonic, which at the time I was obsessed, trust me, the aromas make me think about it a lot. It makes me miss that time of my life. School, outdoor adventuring with the best dog ever, Sega, everything. It’s hard to even describe how it all makes me feel. The simplest things was adventures and new.
However, as awesome as that may sound at the time I did not enjoy it as much as I do the memory. I did not like Nevada. It was cold and dead. And I had a father that was, let’s say less than loving. I won’t tell you too much about that, but I will tell you. People that thought there dad was the meanest ever, changed there opinion when they met my dad, and that is when my dad is on the best behavior. And the quality of living was not as good as it is now. So how is it that these aromas make me miss those times in Nevada so much?
Well the way I see it, you will go through many stages in life. Each one you will take for granted. And when that stage is long gone, you may look back and miss it. It may be because you were younger then, and did so much more in that little time. And after each stage, you always miss what you had, and not rejoice with what you do have. It may not be the case with everyone. But the moral of the story is, always enjoy the stage of life that you are in, cherish your moments. I always think about my childhood with envy, despite the bad things that did happen.
Now in some regard you may think this is all negative and about me getting old. But actually these memories make me happy, and even more so with this fresh smell in the house. May as well stupidly dub it the “SAGA Nintendo scent.” Because that’s what it makes me think of first LOL. Well enjoy your stages in life and the wonderful spring air. Get out there, even if it is just to walk.
