Take a walk with me for just one second...
into the part of the mind you very seldom visit anymore. That tiny space you've pushed back so far out of the way, that it's almost non-existant.
Good or bad
It has the power to bring light into your days!
Winston Churchill said it best... and I quote:
"The farther back you can look... the farther forward you are likely to see!"
Too awesome right?!
Don't be afraid to look back.
It WILL push you forward, I promise!
A Healing Truth
Everything has changed now
From when you were a kid
Those things that once made you go wow
Have disappeared within the years
I drove myself into the past
Back to the old neighborhood
Just overwhelmed by a rush
Of unforgettable thrills
Fighting back nostalgic tears
As if I really could
I rediscovered innocence
And cringed at every one of those
It's strange how priorities fade
A feeling that was so invincibly strong
Has somehow left your heart
Replaced by commitments
Costly deadlines to be made
Never even realizing
That the cycle of life
Was slowly dismantling
Your childhood part by part...
To stand in that place
Where you stood some 40 years ago
Just slows the spinning world
For a precious moment or two
Giving you time to embrace your roots
The foundation of your soul
Validating your existence to yourself
Is such a wonderful healing truth...
The looking back
Enables you to move forward
To conquer new days
With optimistic freedom
Realizing how once our seasons
We now cherish every moment in time
Confident in knowing
That our strength is found
Within the person we believe in...
Our common sense tells us
That we must grow up
To become a cog within the wheel
Contributions to a team
Rolling towards success
But never forget that path
You walked so long ago
When life was simple
Even Santa was real
And you were completely
Unaware of such adult themes
As worry fear and stress...
Live forever as a child
Never allow the flame to die
Ignite each day with a grinning smile
And embrace the luxury of not always
Understanding the reasons why...
True living is found within the innocence
