About moving forward…

My inspiration to you today has to do with staying moving forward…

What I mean by that is most people you ask will say that they like change, that change is good.  That is a lie.  People hate change.  Myself included.

Things staying the same feel much safer, cozier, familiar, familial, traditional, homey.  I could go on.

Recently when I have encountered changes, many of them, which I have shared with you, I have conjured this visual in my mind of having someone or something behind my back, like a door shut, or a hand, that only allows me to move forward.  That doesn’t allow me to look back, turn back, or even care about what I just left behind.

And then I feel better.

Because regret, concern, worry is usually related to something that just happened that I didn’t like.  Even if it was an instant ago, it’s already in the past.  That is when I think and say to myself, “Just move forward.”

For some reasons, that loosens the reigns of my mind that tells me to analyze the incident that just went down and fix it and mull it over.

I just move forward.

And even inside this visual of forward motion things that do need to be fixed, get fixed. But it is different.  Pushing the boulder uphill is still a lot easier that trying to pick it up from behind.

And the earth turns anyway and of course everything turns out in the end, sans my furrowed brow and worries.

If this makes no sense to you – disregard immediately.

But if it does, do respond and let me know what you think about this moving forward business.
