Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.
July 10th - moving forward one step, one day at a time
Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebur
God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can
And wisdom to know the difference
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time’
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His Will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next
The past is both our best friend and our worst enemy, it can lift us up sometimes, but more often than not, it knocks us down. There will be times throughout all our lives that we don’t want to remember and there are times we won’t ever want to forget.
We cannot do anything about what happened in the past to change it, but every day we get a fresh start and a new chance to live life to the best of our ability. We have to move forward and leave the past in the past where it belongs.
One thing I know from my own life is that we only ever have this moment and can take the one step or moment at a time.
Just breathe you’ll never get this moment again.
Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.
