We Can’t Go Back In Time

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning,

but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

Maria Robinson, author



As I see it. . . . . . . .

We can’t go back in time


Your past is gone and what is done is in the history book of your life.


You’re not able to go back into time to relive those days of your life again.


The past is there to cherish the positive memories and to use the challenging times as a learning experiences.


You can’t go back into the past and change what happen. But you can use the experiences of the past to change the future by creating a new beginning leading and a new ending.


You have the capacity today create a new ending by moving into the future with a new attitude and to adjust your thinking to create a new path for your success journey. 


We can’t go back in time. But we are able to go forward into our future with confidence that we have learned the lessons from our past and that we can apply them to create a new ending.

Lou- another very good motivational post.  So many of us get hung up on the past, but your words remind us that we can take control and write a new ending.

Thanks Lou, sometimes we would love to redo something that happened in the past.  We cannot control the past but we still can influence our future.

Let go or be dragged. If you are not able to put the past where it belongs, you are hooked by barb wire on each wrist and continually reliving, stuck in the earlier event)s). But good luck helping someone with that logic as they can call you insensitive and stay stuck. Sometimes a martyr. Your life is not over until it is. You will be dead a lot longer than a live too is how it usually goes right?

It can at times be difficult letting things go, but as much as we can't go back, the only way we can go is forward, into the new.

Learn from the past, but let go of the inhibitions. Time marches on.
