It’s fun to see how long (and not grey) our friend’s hair was twenty or thirty years ago…especially if that person has little or no hair now (like me). It’s neat to see our faces before years of experience (and sun damage) have made their mark. The clothing styles are always good for a laugh…nice OP shorts, Magnum!
#tbt posts provide a window into who we were, and the things we thought were important. As we look at a #tbt photo, we know how things turn out for this “stranger” in the picture. The person in that old photo has years of decisions to make, countless lessons to learn, and many hearts to touch. Each #tbt post gives us a glimpse of potential yet to be fulfilled.
Look in the mirror. You get to see your future #tbt photo every day.
What potential do you have that has yet to be fulfilled? Whose hearts will you touch? Will you make sound decisions? What will you learn along the way? None of us know for certain.
One thing is certain. Many of the things that seem important today won’t be so important in twenty or thirty years.
