Today I talk about how I'm stuck.
I don't want to be a person who lives in the past.
On the flip side, if I don't remember life changing events is that disrespectful?
There is a great quote in the Sheryl Crow song “Every Day is a Winding Road” and she asks, “Why am I a stranger in my own life?”
I talk about the day I watched my Mom breakdown upon hearing her father's voice for the first time in a long time. So now I'm worried about playing an old tape that has my Mom's voice.
I don't want to be “THAT GUY” who is always talking about his Mom. At this point, I've spent more time without her than I did with her.
So I get really worried that I spend too much time looking back.
