STOP AND THINK – The energy it takes to hang onto the past [may be] holding you back from a new life. (Mary Manin Morrissey, teacher and author)

Some of us really like to live in the past, don’t we? We’re nostalgic, and we’re often longing for “the good ole days.” Maybe, those days weren’t so good for you, and you’re trapped in the fear or pain of the past. In that case, stop wasting time and energy over what can’t be changed and put that effort into worthy steps into the future.

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me. (Philippians 3:13, 14)
