Moving On

Sharing a few of the lyrics from one of my favorite songs by Rascal Flats. 

I’ve dealt with my ghosts and I’ve faced all my demons…..Finally content with a past I regret…..I’ve found you find strength in your moments of weakness…..For once I’m at peace with myself…..I’ve been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long…..I’m movin’ on.

Have you ever felt trapped in your life before? The answer is to leave the past behind and move on toward the future. The hummingbirds have it figured out. They move south at the end of the summer, leaving the past season behind. Then they return again in the spring. Sounds like a great  plan.

  1. We need to remember the past to keep us on track in the present so our future will hopefully be better than the present and the past. Love pictures of hummingbirds.

    • Yes but I am referring to deep wounds from the past that we must leave behind in order to move forward. Not leaving any memories behind, but the pain that pulls us down.

  2. You are a wise woman! You would make a great counselor. I know someone that saw her daughter killed by a bus driver. She later healed by going into the counseling profession. Now, she helps others cope better.
