Ten-Year Anniversary

So, I've had this journal for ten years now, as of today.

I know I don't write here an awful lot; I've noticed over the last few years that my drive to write things here has drained away. Maybe it would do me good to start writing here again, though I don't know what about. (I think that's been part of the problem, honestly-- a lack of writing ideas.)

Earlier today, I was thinking about ten years ago, where I was in my life at the time, and all that, and I considered the question "What would I tell my ten-years-ago self if I could?" But then, I realized that the choices I made and the actions I did are what made me who I am right now, both for good and for ill. And if I changed any of that, I wouldn't be the me that I know now, not really. Don't get me wrong, I've had plenty of bad days over the last ten years, but I've also had plenty of awesome days (as well as okay days, mediocre days, and meh days), and I wouldn't want to take a path that wouldn't have led to the good days just for the sake of sparing myself the bad ones.

tl;dr-- I shouldn't spend more time on if-onlys than on now-whats. And I think I like who I am now better than who I was ten years ago.
