Then and Now

(I borrowed this format from a fellow Slicer.)

I used to think winning was the most important thing when playing a sport/game. Now I think not injuring my old bones is essential to my sports experiences.

I used to rarely eat vegetables. Now I love beets.

I used to wonder when pre-drinking would begin. Now I wonder when it’s too early to go to bed.

I used to believe that Catholicism was the one, true way. Now I believe there are many paths up the mountain.

I used to think using certain words were just funny and okay. Now I know how words are behind beliefs and opinions and how harmful words can be.

I used to believe that anyone could succeed in this country. Now I believe there are systems in place that keep certain groups down and maintain the status quo.

I used to waste time watching TV all day long. Now I waste time on my phone.

I used to believe in the goodness in all people. Now I still believe in the goodness in all people.

  1. Ha ha! Now I waste time on my phone. True. I get a screen time analysis weekly now. My report card was not good last week. I like this format and the picture it gives of you.

  2. Nice post- I like the format- night have to steal/borrow it 🙂

    I particularly like your references to Catholicism and the use of phone. In a funny (not so funny) way, our beliefs have shifted from what our parents taught us to what the internet shows us-
    Thanks for this post- I love reflection in all its forms

  3. This is great! Such a simple format, but you share so much! And I love that you show both growth and change as well as holding onto certain things. I’m going to give this format a try!
