The past is something that haunts us all. From the happiness to pain, the tears, and the laughter we all once faced. From loss to gain, sunshine to rain.
We all have run through the rain and thunderstorms to aching pain. Somehow, we survived this long, and we are strong enough to carry on. Each time we thought of giving up, we stood up and carried on.
Now you are at the crossroads once more. Up or down, left or right? Which way to go is up to us. Commitment, or lack thereof, we must face the choice we make. No turning back, full tilt ahead. Let the crossroads take us to places and people we haven’t met.
Let relationships die if they lead nowhere. Plant new seeds and carry on. The road ahead is yet unknown, move on if you are unsure. Stay a while if it feels alright, when you’ve had enough it’s time to pack.
Set your sights on the next day, forget about yesterday!
You cannot change or take back the words you’ve said. Cannot know what is next. Each sunrise will bring something new, so the crossroads will come true. Decide today and fight the night. Your nightmares may have scared you, but they can no longer harm you. You’ve got to move on and find strength in the new day. You’ll know soon enough if it feels all right. New job, new house, new life. Fight the feeling of fright. Stagnancy is complacency, only you can make the change. New roads will lead to new opportunities, this is one thing I can surely say. Yesterday was just another day! It came and went like the days before. You may have been angry, happy, or in tears. But you got up and made it through another day. You’ve got the strength to carry on. You have the power to move on. Do not fight with your body and your mind. Take a deep breath and one more. Set your sights on a new goal. Smile in the mirror and you’ll see, you can make it through another day.
There may be a raging river in your path. However, you have swam before against the flow. You may struggle, and you may be in pain. Your muscles may strain. You’ll be in despair. Heed not I say as you’ll be alright. The pain you feel is temporary. Accomplishments will give you strength and make you stronger. Each experience will build up to a new one.
Do not look back in vain. You will only rehash the pain. No, it will not be easy to carry on. Sometimes you will close your eyes and drop to your knees. It is not failure it is a break. You will get up and take the next step. You have already succeeded. Each time you come to the crossroads remember that you have been here before. This is just another turn another road. In this journey of life, we all fail, rejoice, and start again. Do not fear the crossroads, roadblocks, or U-turns. Keep moving, keep working, and keep struggling along. One day the roads will clear and the sun will shine. You will look back on your journey with a smile.
