I was digging through some old files on the computer tonight getting ready to transfer onto my shiny new one and I found some amazing things that I’d forgotten. Things I’d put some serious work into, filed away and then never looked back on as life and HeadStrong moved on. If I must say so myself, some of it is really good! And some of it has reminded me of many of the things that were important to me back then and perhaps should be important to me now (i’m going to post one of those things straight after this post).
This is what happens isn’t it? We work hard to make things like relationships, careers, lives, hobbies, businesses, families, health and then before we know it we forget the hard work we put in and take it for granted. Just another file in the big disc drive of life.
If you look back tonight, what have you done that you are proud of? The answer ‘nothing’ is banned due to the fact it’s total bollocks, there will be at least one thing if you are really honest with yourself.
We put work into these things because they matter and because they are important to us. So keep them, cherish them, repurpose them and realise that much of what was important to you then, if your honest, is still important now.
Be proud of your old files. They made you who you are today and many of them can help you become the person you want to be tomorrow.
