Default "Choices"

"I had come across this and decided to share with you as it's wisdom rings true. I thought it was rather fitting to leave off at this note.... As always I wish you all peace and a level path in your journey"
Cal821( Dave )

Life's Choices


We cannot change the way we were
Or the things already done
The paths we walked
The way we talked
Or decisions that we made
As time goes by we have the choice
To let some memories fade
No need to carry our mistakes
Or try to make amends
We have the gift within us
To be rid of our dead weight
We have the chance with each new day
When we awake with daylight
To leave those ways and start afresh
To make our inner selves feel worthy
For if we don't
We take the chance of living in the past
But if we commit to make a change
We'll leave this all behind
The better things will come to us
And our days will all be finer
So when you wake
Make no mistake
For when you make this choice
Life will improve one thousand fold
And you will find all your joy
Your dreams and hopes will come to life
And your happiness you will find
For when you go to sleep each night
Your heart will feel so much
You'll open up your own minds eye
And you'll hold your loved ones dearer
So change the now the future
And the light will soon be clearer

all things in the past everything--we said and did, won, loved or lost rejoyced in, experienced, regretted, nothing can ever be changed sometimes we wish we could go back and change something or make a different descision than we did, taken a different path, perhaps not had an argument or loved more deeply, not taken for granted what we had or taken a different turning that caused us grief but we can't and we have to accept the past is gone
as dave has said we can carry regrets with us for a lifetime what will it do nothing but weigh heavy on our shoulders all our past good and bad is part of who we are our loved ones who arn't here with us taught us many things mostly how wonderful life is and what it feels to love and be loved and they are also part of who we are but we can't change what has happened we have to say not in grief that they are gone but rejoyce in who they were and be eternaly grateful they were here with us once and part of our lives there is a life to be lived again i pray we all can lay down our grief one day and be able to move on

the moving finger writes and having written moves on
nor all your piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line
nor all your tears wash out a word of it
