Past – Future & YouPosted: April 24, 2013
“Your life,” he said,
“doesn’t have to be played out against your past.”
Ex governor Jim McGreevey
Do you have chapters in your “life history” – – –
you wish had never been written?
When you have a few years on you,
When you have a history,
When you have made choices that have not been – – –
the most perfect,
When you have time yet to live, to create, to be, to move forward:
Does your past determine what you future must be?
I think not.
Yes, the past, your past – it is always there – a river within,
Yet one can,
If one chooses,
To move beyond and become more than what was.
The future, your future – is not your past
Unless you chose that to be your desire.
What holds you back;
From dreaming new dreams?
From seeing the possible in yourself?
From moving forward?
From bridging where you are now, to where you want to be?
From a new dawn, a new day?
From “new life”?
Is it what others may think
Is it you?
