On Saturday, there was a Regatta on the seafront. I did not go as I was not in a comfortable place, so I kept looking out the door to see what was going on. Then later on, a little after 5pm, I heard what sounded a moped breaking wind, and then I heard it again, and again. So I looked out the window and there were planes doing an air display right in front of my balcony. So I grabbed my camera and went outside.
As we got through life, things happen that teach us lessons. Whether they be good things or bad things, they still teach us a valuable lesson. We can be taught how to love, how not to love. How to smile, how not to smile. When to be quiet, when to be loud, and above all, that we are ourselves. There are times that we are taught that some relationships, some times some places that we don’t go back to. If you look back on them times and think “everything is going to be like that” then you are revisiting the past and letting it have a hold on you. If you look back and think “every time I do this, that will happen” or “every time I see this person, then this will happen”, you are staying in the past. You don’t need to do that. If you look behind you, do it so that you are seeing how far you have come. Don’t look back and stay there. You need to move forward. Don’t think “everything is going to be like that”, think “that was like that, this time it will be different” because the next time it can be different, if you allow it to. Don’t allow yourself to be ruled by the fears and mistakes of your past. They are behind you. There is a reason our eyes face the same way as we walk. So we can see where we are going, not where we have been. Looking behind, we miss things in front.
Have a great week.
