You Can't Go Back

Sometimes I think that in the heat of the moment, we don't appreciate what a good thing we have until it's gone.

We take it for granted and although we love it and try to make the best use of it, we begin to think it will always be there, that we can come back to it no matter what.

But things don't always stay the same; in fact, they're always changing. And you never know when that one thing that means so much to you is going to change or no longer be a part of your life. You'll do your best to move on but still find yourself looking wistfully backwards, hoping you can find the missing thing and return it to its former place.

But the truth is you can't go back. No matter how much you may want to, you have to keep pressing forward. You have to accept the twists and turns your path through life makes and learn to be happy with the changes that come your way. Besides, if you're constantly looking back, you're going to end up running into something and just think how embarrassing that would be! It helps to be flexible so when these changes hit you, you don't snap and break. That would be pretty painful.

So the advice I leave for you, anybody who reads my blog, is to appreciate the good things when you have them. Hold tight to them and avoid taking them for granted. You never know when you're going to have to let go and move on to something else, but just keep in mind that it can be done, no matter how difficult. Try to keep a positive attitude--that's sure to help too.
