Shared Reading: “The Point of No Return”

There are those points in our lives when we realize we cannot return to our former way of living. And while those times past can often come calling, we have to understand that staying in the present moment and moving forward are always going to be in our best interest. I struggle with this on many levels and found a writing that seemed to be speaking to me. The writing is one I’ve copied into my journal and have been referring to on a frequent basis. (Comments in intalicized print are my own.)

“When you come face-to-face with the point of no return, remember the good times (and looking back, there were many), appreciate the joyful times (once again, there were plenty of those), be grateful for any support, encouragment, or contentment you experienced (I received so much from so many).
Pack all of those things in a corner of your heart and take them with you as you move forward. Acknowledge and accept that you may not be able to go back to what you had but that you have something to take with you on your new journey.”
