Childhood Memories

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Greenville Central

Reading articles again and came across one that someone tells of their fondest childhood memory. The way she describes it was wonderful. Out of this, she mostly remembers the lunch she had, a tuna fish sandwich. She goes on to talk about how she has spent many years trying to recreate this sandwich. She has failed many times in trying to produce this sandwich.

It got me to thinking of things that I remembered from my childhood that I loved and wanted to recreate but failed at. I remember food from when I was a child and how good it was, but have it now and it isn't the same as I remembered. Was it my taste buds that changed or did they just grow up?

So what I really got from reading this article was that no matter what you try and if you fail or not, it is the process that is the learning experience not the result. So yes my taste bud grew up. I have grown to love new things but still remember the road that got me there. That is what makes me who I am today.

So I challenge all to try new thing with open arms. They might work and they might not, but make sure you enjoy the journey and not just focus on the destination.

Crystal, I couldn't agree more.  I spent over 10 years in a cubical!  Me, three walls and a computer monitor, that was enough.  I had to do something different so I got into new home construction sales and loved every minute of it.  Out in the open, dealing with people, the smell of 2x4s, insulation, paint and dirt!  Now I'm selling buildings.  Wow - it's weird how things change in your life.  Great post thanks for sharing.

The childhood memory that pops into my head is with my grandpa and how happy I was when I was with him. I don't have the same feeling now, but they are more grown up feelings and things I will carry with me forever. They have made me who I am today.
