The Past

Many times people make comments like,” I remember when I used to have those” or “I remember those days” they say it like they want these things back. There are so many things in our past we can’t have back and continuous wishing that you still have them, will depress you. I can not have my teenage years back, so is wishing I could still pack up and leave my house now be considered wired. The past is there to show us how far we have come and encourage us to push forward into the future to achieve more.

Accepting the present, helps you appreciate what you had and where you are going to.

Leave the past and face the future. I found this poetry  on https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/living-in-the-present

“THE FOUR HEAVENLY FOUNTAINS

Laugh, I tell you
And you will turn back
The hands of time.

Smile, I tell you
And you will reflect
The face of the divine.

Sing, I tell you
And all the angels will sing with you!

Cry, I tell you
And the reflections found in your pool of tears –
Will remind you of the lessons of today and yesterday
To guide you through the fears of tomorrow.”
