This is the Original Friday Inspiration series – amazing things that we handpicked to inspire you. This week we dig into the beauty of the past.

Once upon a time…

We all have memories that make us happy whenever we remember them. For most of us the past means childhood, family, friends. Somehow we always have the impression that we used to have more free time in the past. Even the days seemed to be longer.

In today’s post we look at the past as a source of inspiration. And there is so much to take on board….

Think about what people used to wear in the past, how movies were made, what activities people used to have. And do you remember the games you used to play with your friends? What about the old family car?

Don’t get too melancholic, and be grateful that you had the chance to live those moments.
