“You’re not the same person you were a year ago,
a month ago, or a week ago. You’re always growing.
Experiences don’t stop. That’s life.” – Unknown
A new normal which is always evolving ~ that’s what life is all about I think ~ change is inevitable and with change comes growth spiritually, mentally and emotionally. It’s not always easy to accept change in our lives or to know that there simply are some parts of our daily lives that we have no control over. Health issues, relationships, financial dips and simple day to day hardships can be overwhelming at times. I understand. But when you can look back as the observer in your own life and see how you’ve developed, it’s amazing to see where you’ve come from and how much you’ve progressed as a soul in a human body.
Looking back to your past, looking at your present and planning your future can be difficult. We’ve not always made the choices we wished we had. We can beat ourselves up over things that have occurred and how we reacted or we can be kind and forgiving to ourselves and others. We can take the lessons learned albeit not easily and hold them dear to our hearts or we can punish ourselves and others for choices made. It’s up to you.
Life throws curve balls sometimes. That’s a fact. But as Ram Dass reminded us, “we’re all just walking each other home.” We can choose to take baby steps down our life path, we can move backwards or we can stop and spin until we’re dizzy and fall down. But we still have to get up and begin moving on again, taking the lessons learned into our repertoire and incorporate them into our lives. It’s your choice dear friends.
You are not the same person you were a year ago. For some of us, that’s a good thing. We’ve gotten stronger, more understanding and loving as time heals all wounds. Look back with a gentle, loving hug, embrace your present situation as it is and hold lovingly your plans for the future.
And take my hand…I’m here.
