Each track meet that my school has went to this track season, I have improved my throwing distance for shot put and discus, not by much, just a few feet each meet, but by the end of the season, I will have improved by a great distance. 🙂 That is how life is. You move forward, and even though right now it seems like you are moving forward just a little bit, in the end, it is worth it.
People like living in the past because it is comfortable. They live in the past because they are afraid of the future. In the past, everybody has had hellish times, and there are sure to be more in the future, but we can’t just focus on that. There is beauty in the future. Because we have bad times, the good times seem even better. The future holds the dreams that we CAN accomplish, when we were unable to as kids. We get to have the opportunity to;give blood, and save somebody’s life. Become a doctor or an astronaut. We get to go to college, and become Einsteins for people to look to for inspiration a hundred years from now. We get to get married, and have children! The past is something that can not be changed, it holds lost possibilities. While the future has so much more to offer. So Stay strong, even if it is only for yourself! 🙂
