Hello Monday Friends……………you know what Monday means right? First day of a new week! Good time to start off with something to really THINK about right? “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort. Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!
I think a lot of us – me included – begin at a certain point in their lives to spend a LOT of time looking back – after all there is usually more behind us than ahead of us. But remember what’s done is done. I think maybe a lot of us believe if we look back we’ll see our mistakes and learn from them, etc. Well, perhaps this advice below in my SPARK today makes more sense. Focus FORWARD. What’s done is done.
Well, it’s true……………….it just isn’t that easy to do sometimes. Maybe looking back in time for what you’ve LOST is the problem…..memories are important and they aren’t LOST moments – they are just tucked away in boxes in our mind. Looking forward is like getting a brand new box to open – can’t WAIT to see what’s inside!
