the Good Old Days

I think I have this post in the back of my mind since a while an I needed a push to post it so I think I must thank Attawie for providing this push "Domo arigato Attawie chan" (yeah I'm in the mood for some Japanese... :)

it has been a while since I've noticed something which is that between every now and then all of us tend to look back and remember the good old days but frankly what good old days and were they really good?
the answer is that they probably not...! so why do we remember them and refer to them as the good old days although when they were our present days we used to think they suck big time and we just want the day to pass (and keep in mind I'm not talking about the good memories we had but rather the ordinary days) let's take an example here for the sake of clarity : as I started my job the job was mainly about studying and exams since I was a fresh engineer so we stayed till 3 am studying only to wake up at seven and go to work so it was really hard because your evaluation depends on your progress and I couldn't afford to mess up, anyway the point is as I now look back to these days I think "OH the good old days" although I was suffering in that period and just wanted everyday to just pass safely. That makes me wonder now if these days were good then what a shit whole is my life heading toward (forgive my french) and if every time I look back and think these were good days then that would only mean I'm heading downhill from bad to worst???!!!

and then another question pops up "was I happy then? and am I happy now" if I wasn't happy on that time then how would I remember these days as the good old days? and if I'm not happy now then how will I remember the present days in the future as the good old days? is my happiness now less than before? all these questions are so confusing yet they need to be answered.

after a while of having these confusing thoughts I've discovered something what I actually remember of these days was not the suffering or the tiredness but rather the sparkling moments I had with friends and co-workers and how I was vital, eager to learn and even afraid of the outcome since for me that was a good experience and even if it was not so good it is an experience. I'm happy to be able to endure it and I'm happy of the result. and as long as I haven't done anything to be ashamed of or hurt someone in the process. Since my is my life I live it how I want and there will definitely be some setbacks, sad moments and even a good deal of suffering yet I shall still live it, I shall learn from my mistakes, cherish the valuable moments and always keep in my mind the good old days and look forward to make my present days a good old days for my future and I hope that I'll always look back and let out a tender sigh and say "those were the good old days"....

may all your days be such a good old days if not don't keep sitting on your ass u have to make them... :)

P.S. I know the structure is week because I'm a bit busy and wrote this post in three days each day I wrote a part so u may see some inconsistency. thank u for your tolerance... :D

We're happy to read anything by you not for the words or French style ;) but for the idea between the lines. Thanks for sharing and will wait for more.

as for the "good old days", we refer to 1991 war as "good old days" and remember how we survive it. Today's war is the same, let alone each and every day we have to survive.

I wish you all the best bro. and inshaAllah there will always be good days

"my life I live it how I want and there will definitely be some setbacks, sad moments and even a good deal of suffering yet I shall still live it, I shall learn from my mistakes, cherish the valuable moments and always keep in my mind the good old days and look forward to make my present days a good old days for my future and I hope that I'll always look back and let out a tender sigh and say "those were the good old days"....

Amen :)

Hello Kyubai! Its nice to see you post something again. :)

So, I take it you are now enjoying your engineering job? I hope so! It sounds like you had to work and study very hard to demonstrate your knowledge and proficiency.

I have some understanding for why you feel nostalgic about those very hard days. Back when I was in graduate school, I was busier that I have ever been before or since. I was taking classes, teaching a class, working on my thesis research, and spending my free time with a very special girl. I have many very strong memories of those times. They were exciting and challenging times that were sometimes filled with anxiety, but also great rewards.

I hope that you fill find many good days ahead and that your good days will mostly turn into better ones. Good luck! :)

Attawie: thank u for your kind feelings and I wish u'll always have great days.

David: glad to be posting again... ;)
and about my Job actually I'm currently switching to a new job and will see how things goes.
I think as for each day we feel alive that would be a good day and may all your days be as great...

Hello Kyubai.
Life is not pink, so there most be ups and downs here and there, this is really normal. and to be normal, you have to give each day and event what it deserve and to live the moment you are in. All of us can create the good time for or selves even by watching your favorit show and having your favorit meal.
