I look back at my teenage pictures and I was a hottie! But I never thought so at the time. I only focused on the zit or the freckle or the number on the scale. As a result, I didn't appreciated what I had when I had it. Now that I'm older, my perspective has shifted, and I recognize that the "here and now" all too quickly becomes the "there and then."
