Tuesday’s Quotes August 21, 2018 -Good Advice

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”  — Maria Robinson

As much as we would wish it to be, there are no ‘do over’s’ in life. We still haven’t built a working time machine. No Groundhog’s Day-like infinite series of chances to get it right. We blunder along doing the best we can. Sometime external forces work against us, and sometimes we work against ourselves (and others).  Whether the ‘fault’ is ours – be it small flubs, or disastrous errors of judgement, or whether we were not remotely at fault, we do not have the ability to change the past. And although the past, the good and the bad, plays a large role in making us who we are, the future is not preordained. Most of the time, we have the ability to review where we are and change course for a better route or a better destination. Just because we are currently heading straight for a cliff, does not mean we lack the ability to turn the wheel.

Pax.

  1. I believe this so much and yet… I’m looking at my current craziness and see that cliff looming and just don’t have a clue what to do about it. Stop isn’t an option, reverse isn’t, left isn’t… maybe a helicopter?
