Why is it so hard for us to let go of the past? Of course we want to remember lessons learned through our lives, but we don't live there anymore. I've heard it said; even God can't change the past. I'm not so sure about that. I am not going to put limits on what God can or cannot do.
The point is, I can't go back and change all the things I've regretted in life. I CAN, move on and try to do better today. This I know; beating myself up and staying sad doesn't help anyone or fix anything.
I once listened to a POW talk about his time in prison camp. The one thing I remember is what he took away from it. He says FIDO!! Forget it and drive on. Over the years, I have remembered that and tried to live by it.
Sometimes I'm successful, sometimes I am not. As I get older, I'm better and better at it. When I mess up, I try to take a lesson from it, let it go and move on.
Fantasizing the freedom to keep on keeping on, with joy!
