Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.-Carl Bard
I saw that quote yesterday in a one of the newspapers here and it caught my attention. It's not a new concept to me at all... after all I try to start each day as if it's a new beginning. But I needed that reminder, especially this past week. 9/11 tore my essence apart, as I'm sure it did to everyone in this country. It seemed my life was torn in pieces and even though it's put back together, the pieces are not in the same place as they were before. I looked at life in a completely new way from that point on. I made lots of changes because in order to move on they became necessary. Some were good, some not so good. I started over and am trying to make a brand new ending. I don't know what that will be. The new road I've embarked upon is scarey, yet exciting at the same time. I just put one foot in front of the other and go forward. The journey has been a hard one but I'm still moving and enjoying the scenery, which is a good feeling.
I have no idea what I'm trying to convey here but it's what came out of me today. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't want to get stuck in the past, but at the same time I can't forget it. I just can't let it rule my life. So,I greet one day at a time,(ODAT) and make the best I can out of it!
Thanks for listening. :-)
