This is the 12th of 31 blog posts that I am going to write in 31 days.
I can think of a few things that I miss.
I miss getting a good nights sleep.
I miss my parents.
I miss not having grey hair in my beard.
Right now what I miss the most is that time from around age 15 through 18 when you were old enough to pretend that you were an adult but had minimal responsibilities. So basically the time when you were in high school but with out the school part.
For me my biggest worry was what I was going to do on the weekends. I would work my stress free job at a golf course and driving range driving the tractor that picked up all the golf balls to make enough money to go have fun and do things I probably shouldn’t have been doing.
I had a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food on my plate. Later in my life all that was not always the case. Maybe not all at the same time but that reality was closer than I care to admit.
I am not saying that I would trade the joys in my life that the additional responsibilities of being an adult provide. My life has never been better! But from time to time I find myself looking back at this time in my life with fondness and miss it.
What is something that you miss?
