"There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind." C.S. Lewis
Sometimes I get stuck dwelling on the past - all those people who were once such a huge part of my life - moved across the country, or died, or simply left. And situations that took up so much of my energy and time, now over, resolved, finished.
I used to long for them, wish they hadn't ended, that they were still a part of my world. But I've noticed something amazing - in their place, other people, other things, other situations......
Life never stops filling us up with new and good and amazing things. It makes me excited thinking about the future and what it holds.
Someone once told me that whatever happened good or bad from this moment backward is done, it's over. I can never get it back. So stop looking back, face forward, put one foot in front of the other and go. There are so many amazing people, experiences, adventures waiting.
In Jewish we have a saying - L'Chayim. (To life). And that's what it's all about for me. There's an expectancy in that. So today I say L'Chayim. To life.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
