Looking Back

20161030_183754.png

I will admit that sometimes prompts help me get out of a writing funk. This prompt was from back in July but thought I would give it a shot. I have enjoyed following Free Flow Friday

As we move forward in life it is always good to pause to take a look at where we are coming from. Looking back should be a part of our everyday life. It’s in the looking back that we remember just how far we have come and to where it is we would like to go. Looking back enables us to reconsider the steps we have taken and the steps that we need to take. Sometimes we spend way to much time looking back to the point that it becomes a stumbling block to us and our future. You see we can never gain that which we have lost in looking back. It is only by moving forward can we find the hope that we need to move into the future. So if you find yourself stuck in looking back remember that you are not the same person you use to be back then and you probably wont be the same person that you are today in the future. Our life is made up of the past, the present and the future. If we learn to live in the present we can enjoy both our past and the upcoming future. So when we are looking back lets make sure that it is just to visit and not to take up residence.
