Life Was So Much Better...

Sometime's I find myself in a moment of utter confusion, and it's usually in that time I pull out my 'rose coloured glasses' and think about how much better life was when... neglecting the changes I am able to make to life now. Life is change I've come to realise,  recently I've experienced many aspects of life change, my sister and her family moved away, my boyfriend and I broke up, my circle of friends dwindled, my job loss its buzz, I moved house, people around me changed... and in all that I struggled heaps. All I wanted to do was to go back in time and stay there, not face the uncertainties of today... but then I realised something, if I spend today wanting to be in that past moment then my future is going to be very dull and lifeless because I'm puting all my energy in living in a moment that is well and truelly OVER. Now the future, tomorrow, I cant be sure of what that entails... will I even still be here??? I dont know, but I've found HOPE in the only ONE that does hold the future, and I choose to put mine in HIS hands on a daily basis... life happen's and we can choose to grow and move on or be stuck in the has been and become lifeless... I found a video about being "Stuck in the Past"



I found it encouraging, everyone goes through times of change and it's daunting...

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
       and lean not on your own understanding;

  in all your ways acknowledge him,
       and he will make your paths straight.

I too had a wonderful past, filled with success and joy and a time I looked forward to every day. I lost that vision; I lost that gumption one bit at time and then a big blow that brought me all the way down. Now I have shed the faltered expectations and house of cards I once lived in. Now I am on the rise again and I have faith that I will rise in the wisdom of my experience and the joy of tomorrow.

Exactly.But I think videos and books are just "short term" encouraging stuff.I can't figure a way out to just move ahead in life.
