From Today

by C Cattaway   Jul 22, 2017

Everything happens for a reason.
Wounds fade to become memories.
Time ticks on, regardless of how you spend it.
Old comforts become unhealthy habits.
New paths stretch out ahead of us.
It's ok to look back, if it's to check where we've been.
But forward is the adventure.
There are people back there who moulded us, but now cannot travel the same way.
There are places behind us that we had to visit, to experience what we have.
Ahead is filled with anticipation, & curiosity.
Wonders we've not yet seen, & friends we've yet to meet.
It's ok to look back.
Check over your shoulder, & if I'm there, let us walk a new path,
For now is our time.
Today is the new beginning.
Tomorrow will come.
But today is bursting with opportunity.
Take my hand, & let's see where this road takes us..

    What a beautifully optimistic take on life. In which I whole heartedly believe in. Tomorrow is always an adventure to look forward to but today is the new beginning. Loved it and would have nominated it but I don't have any votes left. It's nice to see such positivity
