Photo Stories Day 4 Videoblogging Week 2007
Looking back on old images brings back mixed emotions and memories. I find it is often difficult for me to look back on my high school years with fondness for very long.
Those years marked a bit of a turning point for me. One in which I have often said to myself that if it were possible to go back and do it again I would do so in a heartbeat.
With all that said, and even though for whatever reason it was emotionally difficult for me to look back on these images I am thankful that I have been taken to the point I am at now. I am glad for the lessons learned and for the grace given me even in my foolishness.
I originally thought I was going to talk about my long hair or my experiences playing hockey in Brooklyn in this video but instead I thought that I should tell the story that was most prominent in my head. The story that for me is most powerful. I tried to record other stories tonight, but if I am true to myself, true to being completely known, if I put aside what I think others might think or say, this is the video that I have to post.
Some may think I am being negative, some may think that I'm too hard on myself....think what you might.....I look back and am spurred on to better....I look forward with hope. I know that my life in the past has had both good and bad (much like anyone else's life)......and yet the best of my life has yet to come(a possibility that exists for us all). Each day is a blessing, each day is a step forward, each day is a day closer to the Lover of my soul. That is the story behind each image, and each memory: they all lead me Godward. And for that I am very thankful.
