This is me in my junior year of high school in my dress for the Sweethearts dance.
(My mom designed and made the dress. It is red velvet and the white part is layers of lace.
I loved it and still do.)
You know how when you think back to high school and with the amazing hindsight that you now have and you regret all the wasted time you spent on boys and trying to be cool and boys?
That's how I think it is going to be when we die. We are going to look back on our lives and actually understand how short and precious our life was and realize how much time we wasted on so many silly, stupid things.
When I think about this future feeling it terrifies me because if feeling it now with all my stupidity and not knowing anything about what comes after this life or the purpose of life imagine how we will feel once we can understand what this life was all about and comprehend how we squandered our time with clothes, TV, trying to be cool, boys, etc. Just the imagined feeling of regret makes me sick.
Hope that made sense to you.
Have a good day! Try not to squander it!
