The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

I confessed recently to an old friend,
"I realized I was looking at you,
in your visit, through old glasses.
Speaking old words.
Telling old stories.
I realize that in my life I've made so many
physical changes and I need to give my spirit time to catch up."
Time for my spirit to look at my friend
through the new glasses of current life experiences.
Old friends are precious.
They become even more treasured when they are wrapped
in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test

as the days slowly move past in dress review.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I choose not to project my past onto my future.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,

Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.

guilts, shames, embarrassments, angers.
One by one, pick up each memory or fear that troubles you,

Release each fear - your fears about your health,
your family, your job, and every other fear.

You can learn how to let go of the past.

Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Stop holding on to the past.
Release your regrets about whatever you may have done

a joyful new future for yourself.

and 90% how I react to it.
