Best time of our lives

Every so often when I see something on television I start thinking about things. Today something hit me and I wondered how many people ever think about the best time of their lives. I think I have a few of those times but I really believe the very best was when I was in high school and right after I graduated. Life was so simple then. I had so may friends and we were such a close knit group. I had strict parents and always had a curfew and rules but I was not in a rowdy crowd. Never went out drinking. I guess anyone on the outside of my group would call us boring but we enjoyed ourselves.

That must have been fun. And you probably didn't even gain an ounce, right?

My parents were strict on me and I couldn't even date in high school and when I went somewhere with friends there was a curfew

For me, the very best time of my life is when we were able to play on the big stage. Our band made it to the finals of an annual band contest. It's was a great feeling for us as a band. Now, I want to do it again...

It is always good having nice memories that leave you wanting to do it again.

@Dextoi Things do change as we get older. Remember this, we can never go back to get something from the past. It is highly unlikely it will ever be the same even if everything appears the same. Good luck you.

The best time of my life is my current life. I have a wonderful Christian family. I married a wonderful husband and gifted by God with one loving son. But I also will not miss recollecting my beautiful childhood memories and high school days where I met my first boyfriend who is now my husband for 30 years now.

I am with you. I didn't need it and when I finally did try it I never liked it.

Yes, at the end of the day it is good to think of the things that made us happy.

It is always good to look back and think about your younger days. Boring or not you did have friends and fun.

i am not the adventurous type but i do think that ive got few of those times as well. i miss the times when i was living alone back in college. i had to figure everything out on my own and laugh at myself most of the time. i also love that time when i didnt have a boyfriend and all i did was treat myself and enjoy at work. and now as i am writing this, i now remember a lot of those happy days..

I have different pockets of time in my life like that. I was a stress ball most of my childhood life - so it really wasn't then. After I started college, I found a job that suited me well. I broke out of my shell and found that close knit group of friends I always wanted. I learned a lot and had loads of fun - I enjoyed/appreciated more pockets of life since that time.

I reflect on my best and worst experiences a lot as a writer needs to do that to gain material - I am highly introspective anyhow

High school life was indeed sooooo fun. :) back in my high school, we're only 6 in the classroom. 3 male and 3 female, for 4 years (in my country high school is 4 yrs) we became so close and treated each other like family. But when we started college things became busy and now we rarely see each other. :(

I am still boring - I don't like going out to drink or clubbing either.

It's fun to look back on those memories. Hmmm, I'll have to think about when was the best time of my life.
