Your Idiotic Past Self

My close friend Phil Wels posted A Bit of an Idiot yesterday and I implore you to go ahead read it completely. It is not very long, but it is poignant.

I’m not a person who ever thinks about the past as “the best years”, and in what Phil writes it makes sense why my mind doesn’t jump to that conclusion right away. I was an idiot back then. Here’s a picture to prove it!

Idiot Bob

Five years from now I will be again.

I hope that I can always look into the past and see an Idiot Bob. I hope we can all do that. If we are not working to learn more and be better than we were even ten minutes ago, then we are going to atrophy and it is all over.

Just. Keep. Swimming.
