In the world today, people look around them and constantly find something that either upsets them, makes them nervous or even terrifies them. We as a race are constantly always looking over our shoulders, looking out for the next bad thing to happen to us. We rarely stop to just live our lives. We are so busy living that we forget to LIVE. I have even begun to realize that myself tends to do the very same thing. I get so caught up in the mess of life, bills to pay, the next event coming up, holidays, school schedules, work schedules, that I sometimes forget that my children are at a point in their lives where they want and need their mother constantly. My son will be in Kindergarten this year. The time has flown by and I cannot believe he is already old enough to go to school! I wasted many a night worrying about something else instead of reading to him or playing with him or just hanging out with him. I regret that I spent way too many hours fussing over dirty dishes and laundry instead of just relaxing with my family. But I realize I cannot change the past.
In fact, nobody can change their past. Yet we all run from it. We are constanly hiding truths about ourselves to others regarding our past. Why? Why hide when honestly, it really doesn't matter. It was in the PAST. It isn't happening right now at the moment, so why spend the time worrying about it? If anything you should take things that happened to you in your past and make choices TODAY that reflect how you want to change your future. For example, if you are a parent and as a child you were abused, you need to take the steps to make sure your children understand the concept of abuse and how to talk to you regarding if something happens and to never think that it is their fault. Instead of dwelling on your childhood, focus on your children's childhood. Make it better than what yours was. If you spend every second trying to fight your past, you will miss everything happening right at the moment
