Forward Ever, Backwards Never

Even if you could go in reverse

Even if you could traverse the path you have previously traveled
With each and every step backwards being in sync with every forward step you ever took

Even if you could go back to that exact place
To that exact moment
You will realize when you get back to the place you once were
Everything will be different

In essence, there is no going back
Because while you were moving backwards
The whole world was moving forward
When you return to whence you came
You will only be behind
But never in the same place

My point is, while we reminisce over the good old days, ponder over lost opportunities and bad decisions, try to hold on to the memories of our ascended loved ones or our unforgettable moments, we need to maintain a constant awareness that life is intended to be lived moving forward.

It’s good to love who you were, but wouldn’t it be so much better if you loved who you are? Make it happen!!
