Eyes Forward


I am reminded today not to look back. I don’t live there anymore and nothing good could come from glancing over my shoulder. I must look in the direction I want to go and put one foot in front of the other even if it’s only a baby step at a time. I don’t have time for regrets. I don’t have the energy to nurse the old wounds that are ready and willing to rip wide open if I give them enough attention. I cannot enjoy today if I am constantly traveling back to yesterday. Right now I am at peace as I sit here on this beach and feel the waves washing over my feet. My heart is full as the sound of the waves keeps me grounded in the here and now. It is well with my soul and I am grateful for this moment. Eyes forward to the direction I am going…

    The greatest gift we can give ourselves is to change our future by simply changing our thoughts/reactions to what is happening around us. Someone told me a couple of days ago that “Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to that 10%”. I believe this and thank God for the miracle of life each minute.
