It is amazing to me how something new can make everything around it feel old. It also is amazing to me how something old can have such a negative connotation.
Last week, my wife and I purchased a new car. We traded in the car I bought when I first was hired back in 2008. As soon as we got home with the new car my wife began commenting on how her car seemed so “old” in comparison.
How easy do we forget how nice something is when something newer or “better” comes along? We must slow down and enjoy as much as we can. Enjoy the new things but still find appreciation in the more worn things. The memories from them are irreplaceable, and worth the thought.
