DAY 102 - Yesterday is Gone
Our past can be our biggest enemy. One that is extremely difficult to fight. So, while we are aware of it, we should not focus on it. The fight is in front of us. We should never focus on things we cannot change. Things that have came and gone are no more. I went back to where I grew up. Stood at the top of the hill that once looked down on the acres of land we had. I imagined the plum and crabapple trees we would eat from as we played outside. I could almost feel the rocks underneath my bare feet as we would run up and down the dirt road. But when I opened my eyes, there was no house there. Only overgrown shrubs, trees, and a vacant lot where some business once stood. There were not even the paths that would connect all the cousins houses through the woods. We knew these paths so well we could navigate them on the darkest nights. That time had passed, and I was reminded that I’m not allowed back here. I couldn’t live there anymore in that carefree world. Where I’m at is exactly where I’m supposed to be. Adulting and navigating the new paths that I have been exposed to. We can’t relive the past.
