Every single adult has a past. It’s permanent and there is no way to remove anything we’ve ever done or said, or any relationship we’ve ever had. Nobody is perfect and we all do things that later we feel we could have managed better or made a better choice. But life is all about learning and we can only do the best we can at the time in each situation. There is no manual to consult to show us what our decisions may bring. There will be times when we take a wrong turn, say the wrong thing, or do something that brings complications and problems to our lives. We may get involved with someone who takes us down a road that leads to disaster. It happens, but nothing is forever, and we can change direction at any time, and in any place. When we realize we’re going somewhere we don’t want, we can turn around until we’re facing the sun again. We can let go of relationships that are difficult or damaging and move on, but life has a way of looping around, and we might find that despite our best efforts, those involved find their way back to us. It could be by design or chance, but either way, it probably won’t be comfortable. When we’ve changed our journey and have left someone behind to move forward in a new direction, our sights are set on a new road. If they return like a blast from the past and remind us of someplace we’d like to forget, we’ll have to find our way around. History is unchangeable but does not predict the future. We can move forward any way we want and go anywhere we choose. A reminder of where we’ve been is only that. It’s not a command to return to the past. Nothing can keep us from the journey we’ve chosen. We can keep our eyes focused on the road ahead and achieve anything we desire. We know what we want, and with determination and patience, will make it ours.

Sometimes it’s easy to see where our decisions will take us, but other times if the situation is complicated or there are a lot of other people involved, we may have no idea how it will turn out. There are always a lot of variables and sometimes things will go wrong. Bad decisions can stick to us like glue for a while, but as we continue to choose well, they will fade away as we move forward. We are capable of making excellent choices, and as we do, we’ll get closer to the destinations we want the most.

We may have a situation in our past that is so difficult we try to keep it secret. Trying to keep a secret may work, but information has a way of making itself known. Truth will always surface, and when it does, we will find a way to handle it. There is no situation so terrible or difficult we can’t manage it and manage it well. We are strong and have all the courage and wisdom we need to navigate anything.

Today if someone has returned from a difficult time in your past and you are unsettled, trust yourself. You’re on a new road and the past is behind you. Stand strong and look ahead. Every single dream is still there for you and nothing can hold you down. Be confident and sure. You will reach the goal you desire, and claim the prize.
