Run down Amusement Park

Another blast from my past that I like to come back to once in a while is Slyvan Beach  along with it’s virtually unchanged mini amusement park.  

As you know,. I love me some nostalgia.  

I used to come here all the time when I was a kid.  

There is a certain charm to the area.  I actually like to walk the grounds during off season.  Where the businesses shut down and the area becomes desserted with the exception of the “townies”

Reminds me of he fictional town of Amity Island.  The settings to the novel and film “Jaws”

I can hear the mayor saying “Amity is a summer town…we need summer dollars”

Remember the movie “Big”?

Used to fish on this pier with my dad

All my boys

There is a point to revisiting places from my past.  That will become clear as we go along.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
