Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.Isaiah 43:18
Don’t wait for a new week, a new day or the new year to start making changes. You know what you want and you know how to get it!
There are a lot of things in the past that in the past I have been stuck on. Sometimes I look back and which I could go back to make some tweaks here and there. Perhaps prevent a certain meeting or totally erase another. If only I could.
But sadly there is nothing we can do about what we have already done. But wouldn’t life be easy in the present if we could?
We will never know because it is impossible. While we focus on the past, our present is passing. There it is waving at us. It looks sorry for us- as it should, what a waste of a present!
Yes the present is a gift that will keep giving if we remain fully committed to it. Yet, many of us are careless with it and are either looking behind or ahead, but never living in the present.
We hurry to do everything and then wonder where the time went. We hope that one day we can get to live in the present. However it has been there all along, slipping between our fingers until very little is left to enjoy.
It’s important to remember what matters, let go of what is keeping you from holding to the present that you have for as long as you have it.
