Moving On

"No one can go back and make a brand new start; Anyone can start now and make a brand new ending..." ~ Carl Bard

I saw this quote on a friend's Facebook post today. How very true it is!

It really isn't possible to unring bells and go back to any point in our past. What's done... is done.

We can't change how we've been treated. We can't change how we've acted. We can't change the fact that our actions and the actions of others have produced consequences in our lives. It is what it is.

We do, however, have the power to choose our reactions and actions in any moment in time. We can't undo what's been done, but we can greatly alter what happens from this moment on.

Many people spend a lot of their life energy bemoaning what they have done wrong, or what has been done (wrong) to them. This is a waste of our life energy!

Start now. Start this moment. Live from this moment forward, instead of looking over your shoulder to what has gone before. It does no good. It simply siphons energy away from the possibilities of the future.

Build the experience from this moment on - taking into account all that has come before, without getting stuck there!
