You Can Never Go Back

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3: 13-14

It’s difficult, if not impossible to get back to a good place after leaving because you thought it wasn’t good enough” ~Ministerneecy ~

So, today I woke up thinking about “what if’s.” For instance, “what if I had realized that it was impossible for me to know as much at 21 years-old as my mother did when she was twice my age?

Of course a laundry list of missteps reside in my permanent memory bank. Like traditional banks, I can withdraw any one of them whenever I want. Each one has a unique value assigned by the Teacher, but graded in the “school of hard knocks.”

While the knowledge derived is priceless, the fact that “you can never go back” to undo certain errors of youth is a hard pill to swallow.
