Change Can Be A Good Thing

So I've been back in the town in which I grew up for a few weeks now. One of the things I've been doing is walking around the old neighborhood and taking pictures. Things have changed here, but the area still feels the same.

A lot of thoughts have gone through my mind as I've walked by the places I used to live, my old schools and places I used to frequent back then. It's been a time of reflection . I've thought about what could have been and wondered if I made the right choices.

I'd like to get away from that way of thinking. I'm admittedly not in the best frame of mind these days, and there's a lot of regret in my life. I know I need to let go of that and embrace the idea that the choices I've made have shaped the person I've become. Also, those memories are all in the past, but I still have a future to create.

I sometimes doubt that I can make my way to a better future, but them I'm reminded of something. I am a believer in God. I don't subscribe to religion, but I believe God put us all here for a reason. I believe that this is only a temporary home for us before we go to our next home, wherever that is.

I snapped the picture above, and I think it is beautiful. It's still autumn here for a little over a week. The leaves are changing colors and falling from the trees. Colors are something we don't give much thought to. They are one of the many gifts God has given us. They paint the beautiful picture that is our world.

I stood in a sea of yellow underneath those beautiful trees. Just as the season is changing and the world is changing, my life is changing as well. A new day is coming, and it can be a better day. God has given us all an opportunity to make our lives better. We must not be afraid of change. We need to embrace the future and make the most of it.

You could have written this for me as I find myself in a similar life place. I know the regrets of my past well and the doubts of my future. I feel we will both do just fine living in the present.
