No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Philippians 3:13-14 NLT
I’ve found it. The most beautiful place to live is in my future, not my past. If you only see me as ‘that’ person in ‘that’ place with ‘those’ problems, NEWS FLASH! I’m no longer there, I’ve moved on.
A long time ago, I had a friend who would drag up my past when I was with her. I nicely reminded her that I was no longer that person and unless she could see me for who I was today and help me into my future, we had no basis for relationship. It doesn’t matter who it is, sister, brother, father, mother, long time friend, if they’re not cheering you on, they’re holding you back.
You can’t get far looking in the rear view mirror. Focus forward my friend!
