Going Forward

Walking backwards while moving forward makes little sense, seems and is both foolish and dangerous.

It even looks silly.

As we move into a new year and a new decade, I have found out from life, mine and others, that one of the elements of the past, the baggage that we carry is the rock we carry over the wounds we have caused or have been done to us.

We all have hurt and are hurt !

Rick Warren wrote in an email today

“Holding on to guilt or resentment is like drinking poison. It can eat you alive. If something isn’t right between you and another person, the time to make it right is now.”

What person do we need to forgive?

Whose forgiveness do we need to seek?

A new year and a new decade offers opportunities for new growth and life!

“Go back?” he thought. “No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!”
