Do you spend a lot of time looking over your shoulder at the past.
I am a believer that what happened in the past has affected us, but it doesn't define who we are now or who we will be in the future.
We can't live our lives in the past. We can only live them in this moment and it is who we are now that is important.
When I look in the mirror I don't see the girl I was at age ten or the young woman I was at age twenty five.
Yes, that was me back then as a young mother, and this is me now as a grandmother.
I am not the same now as I was then. I strive every day to live in this moment. To relish the person that I am today. To look forward to the times ahead. Because I am not travelling backwards. The road ahead is full of so many wonderful surprises.
