Letting go is one of the hardest things we humans have to do. We tend to cling on the things we own even though they're useless. We do this to clothes, furniture, food and sometimes to other human being. The truth is there's always a reason as to why the past is in the past.
"Nostalgia is denial - denial of the painful present." – Midnight in Paris
Of course there's always a comfort in revisiting the things we loved when we were younger. But in reality we're not that same person anymore. Maybe you've even outgrown your past. The idea of it may seem romantic but the flaw to that is it only going to hold you back. Holding on to something intangible will only keep your head above the clouds. It's time to get back on your feet and be thankful for whatever it is in the past.
If it's meant to be it'll be called the present, not the past. Maybe someday it'll catch up to us and come back. But until then, I'm just going to keep both my feet on the ground and hope that one day I'll get to see the past as whatever it's supposed to be.
Vintage Polaroid 600 with PX680 Film by The Impossible Project
(Dissapointed with the quality of the film. With the price of $21
and only 8 films I was expecting a better picture quality.
Better off using Fuji Instax.)
