What is in your blank? “I want my health back”. “I want my life ten years ago back.” “I want the person you were back.”
Life does not stop. Life cannot be turned back. We would love to turn back time.
One thing that stood out to me in the new Mary Poppins Returns movie: time is what it is and life is what it is, and there is no where to go but up. Everyone asked Mary Poppins to do the impossible, turn back time; if she always seems to do the impossible with imagination, surely she can turn back time. What occurred was not magic; what occurred was creative thinking and a forward, upward thinking mindset. She moved the hands of the clock back at just the right moment, and gave needed time to those who were racing to beat it. Time did not change. Life was moving forward and fast. Many helping hands, unseen by the ones needing more time, stepped in to save their friends in need. It was all a matter of perseverance and forward focus. It was all a matter of setting the mind to utilize instead of wallow.
I want the world I had 2 years ago when I could eat anything I wanted any time. I cannot have that back, and maybe I do not want that after-all. Maybe there are things unseen, people or energies behind the scenes, that I needed to come in contact with. Maybe this is just how it was suppose to be for reasons I may not ever know.
Read the article below. I will be meditating upon it these coming days. There is no where to go but up.
