We all make mistakes. Some of them are big while some are small. We can correct them and learn from them. One thing is for sure, when we have done what we can, we must move forward.
The problem with obstacles and challenges are being stuck in them. We sometimes would remain in that space. Often, we have to really pull ourselves out of a situation just so we can move forward. There are also times when we beat ourselves up because of our mistakes. But no matter what the situation is, we must always see that there is a future waiting for us; one that we can change through our choices. For these times, we must remember the quote above, “Don’t look back, you aren’t going that way.”
Some people forget to look at the bright side or the other opportunities waiting for them. They tend to just see their past and how much it has hurt them. But the best way to reach your goal is to leave the past behind and just move forward.
Cars and other vehicles move forward to reach their destination, so why should you go the opposite way? The only way you will be successful is if you stop looking back and start moving forward. Don’t stress yourself out with the past when there is a whole new future waiting to be unlocked. Go for your dreams by embracing the present and looking forward to the future.
Here is an amazing poem that keeps me moving forward!
As you travel through life there are always those times
When decisions just have to be made,
When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce,
And the rain seems to soak your parade.
There are some situations where all you can do
Is simply let go and move on,
Gather your courage and choose a direction
That carries you toward a new dawn.
So pack up your troubles and take a step forward
The process of change can be tough,
But think about all the excitement ahead
There might be adventures you never imagined
Just waiting around the next bend,
And wishes and dreams just about to come true
In ways you can’t yet comprehend!
Perhaps you’ll find friendships that spring from new things
As you challenge your status quo,
And learn there are so many options in life,
Perhaps you’ll go places you never expected
And see things that you’ve never seen,
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds
And wonderful spots in between!
Perhaps you’ll find warmth and affection and caring
And somebody special who’s there
To help you stay cantered and listen with interest
To stories and feelings you share.
Perhaps you’ll find comfort in knowing your friends
Are supportive of all that you do,
And believe that whatever decisions you make,
They’ll be the right choices for you.
So keep putting one foot in front of the other,
And taking your life day by day…
There’s a brighter tomorrow that’s just down the road –Don’t look back!
You’re not going that way!
