Moving Forward in Life

Moving Forward in Life | Heavenletters

To be alive means you grow and change. You don’t stay the same. You can’t stay the same. Beloved, you cannot stay the same as you always were or thought you were. Nor do you have to change every minute of the day. Still, change is your fortune. You can’t predict all the upcoming changes.

Today is not a past event. You can part your hair on the other side. You don’t have to dye your hair purple. It isn’t exactly that you must keep up with the trends. It’s just that you can only live now and not in the past. You don’t have to be a flibberty-gibbet any more than you have to repeat the past. Life is new. You do not walk on a treadmill and tread only the past. There is greater than the past. You are ever new. Open to the present. You are not meant to be freeze dried. You can’t ride the same old horse forever.

Change is the name of the game of life.

Once upon a time, blue jeans were dungarees and were worn for work on the farm. Now blue jeans are fashion forward.

Once a flying machine was a conjecture. Today airplanes fly in the sky every day.

Once computers were imagined. Once computers were bulky and slow. Look at them now.

Once television was black and white.

Today the whole world is before you. Mosey on. You can’t stem the tide. Nor can you pretend the tide away. New is here.
