Nostalgia’s Powerful Impact

By Christy Piña

While we can’t physically time travel just yet, nostalgia is the next best thing. It has the power to take you back to a time that made you laugh, a time that made you cry or even a time that made you do a little bit of both.

Nostalgia comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it comes when we think of TV shows we grew up watching or that friend we spent every day with in middle school or that song we listened to on repeat the summer we had our hearts broken for the first time.

Day in and day out there are times where we see something that reminds us of someone or something from our past, and when we long for that moment, nostalgia takes over. It’s that warm, fuzzy feeling that fills us when we think of those memories.

For our generation, nostalgia often comes when we think about Disney Channel shows like “Lizzie McGuire,” “Phil of the Future,” “That’s So Raven” and “Even Stevens,” which used to fill our afternoons after school. We think of the Bratz dolls we used to play with and the Polly Pockets. We also think of the Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez and NSYNC posters plastered all over our walls. Not to mention the golden era of cartoons featuring “Rugrats,” “Powerpuff Girls,” “The Wild Thornberrys” and “The Fairly Oddparents.”

“It is strange how we hold on to the pieces of the past while we wait for our futures,” wrote Ally Condie, in her novel “Matched,” and while she is right, it is strange, it is also quite comforting.

People often say don’t be stuck in the past, but taking those moments that brought you so much happiness as a child and reminiscing on them from time to time is healthy. It shows you how much you’ve grown since. So, let the nostalgia overcome you from time to time, just make sure you don’t get stuck living in those memories.
