How time does fly.

Holy smokes, 2011 already is upon us.  How does time fly so fast.  Sometimes I think back at the passing of time and although it wasn't that long ago, it feels like another lifetime.  I will be watching a movie and remember what life was like when I first saw the film.  About how clueless I was to exactly how difficult my life would become.  I think, wow I was walking and running then, still lifeguarding, and had such freedom to do whatever I wanted.  It is easy to get sad.   Sad at what I have lost.  I miss my old life  a lot.  I was an athlete.  I liked being athletic.  A friend I lifeguarded on the beach with said to me "You used to be an athlete, no wait you still are an athlete"  How sweet he was to still choose to see me as I was.  It made me cry.  I try to not spend to much time thinking or dwelling on what was.  I try to not spend to much time worrying about what will be.  I work hard to live in the moment.  Sometimes I feel trapped in the moment.  I know many of you get what I am saying here.  I your post and see that others feel as I do or even worse.  
So, 2011 is upon us.  Time to refocus on the moments.  Try to be light in the darkness.  Try to recognize what I can do instead of what I can't do.  Time to choose each day to live up and beat the circumstances.  Happy New Year DS' ers
