I have been thinking.....sometimes we hold on to the past which directly affects if we actualize our goals or fail.Too many times we are forced to listen to those that sit and complain about the past experiences using it as reason why something is not going to work in the future. To those of you who do that, I say wake up and smell the coffee. Yes I believe that we need to learn  from our past experiences, that we can transfer skills and lessons learnt  to create new and better experiences.

There is quote which was made famous by the the Jonestown Massacre in Guyana. It goes like this " Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it" I think it is there to remind us that yes the past is important, for if it was not for the past we would not have been here today however sometimes people use it as an excuse not to move forward. Countries continue to have war because people do not want to put their differences from the past behind them. There is political unrest in many regions of the world because of this. There is non-cohesion of groups with a common goal.There are unstable families. we can go on and on illustrating the effects of holding on to the past. 

I am saying all of this to remind us that; the past cannot be changed so stop thinking about what you should have done differently, it is already finished, so stop moping around and being a crybaby. Start dreaming again, then analyse your current position and come up with some solid actions that can get you on your way to achieving your goal. The time is now to let your grain of SALT count.

To err is human, to forgive, divine.
Alexander Pope

You have to forgive to forget, and forget, to feel again.


If we practice an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, soon the whole world will be blind and toothless.
Mahatma Gandhi


Let us forgive each other - only then will we live in peace.
Leo Tolstoy

You are so right Michael! To many times we hold on to "what was", that we're incapable of see "what can be"
