That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life", - Bryan Adams
Great song and a very interesting message in it!
I was born not in English speaking country and most older people don't know Bryan Adams, but I always heard the similar thoughts from my parents or other elder people when I was a kid. What I heard was just their memories of the past times when they were younger, mostly college times. I believe most people remember those times because they were still living a part of their OWN life. They didn't live with their parents anymore and they still didn't need to go to work yet. After studies mostly all of them started to work, got married and a bit latter got children. I'm not saying that it's bad, I'm just saying that most of them didn't give themselves a chance to experience and create a life that they really want to live. They just bought into somebody else's (societies) life, the norms and the same bewitched circle their parents were caught in. And that's how summer of 69 became just a bright memory of the past. I was going to university myself and the times were great, but I would never like to go back there, because I try to create every day of my life to be another summer of 69. I believe, that life should be never ending summer of 69 and most people quit on that long time ago.
Are you one of them? The good news is you don't have to be. Every day is another beautiful day to create the life you really want, the one that could not just become another summer of 69 but to stay that way forever. It's just your choice to stay living in memories or to stand up and create an epic life with never ending bright memories to come!
So, are you going to live in just a memory of summer of 69 or you are going to create new and never ending summer of 69?
