If I Could Relive Any Day of My Life

Leave a comment


I would not want to relive any day of my life. Why, you ask? Well let me tell you.

The past is past and regrets cannot be considered. When one looks on the past, either with longing or regret, they simply delay the treasures of their future. A wrong cannot be returned to and reversed and a joy cannot be reentered if allowed to lift.

The universal Law the controls all things does not permit a return to the past, for good reason.

Because time is linear, the past, present and future are all entwined and in consistant motion. The human nature is to move forward. Yet the world has said stop! Look back, lest you forget…

Yet we are not spiritually bound to the world. The spiritual says the old things pass away and all becomes new when are minds are forward thinking. Forward thinking involves not the past…but the future alone.

I am who I am, and for the most part, I love who I am. I got here moment by moment by learning from my mistakes and practicing my successes. To look back delays me from creating, prevents me from going forward and making a mark in this life.

Do you really want to go back into a memory that loses the full inpact while in the memory? Or would you rather move forward and create a new experience that holds passion and joy? Or even a not so great moment that opens your wisdom's eyes wider in understanding.

I, for one, am moving forward. Leaving my footprints in the sand and my touch on the lives that I am blessed to come into contact with. Moving into the bright future and closing the door on the storage of my past. No need to visit, my work is done there.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
