Week 19 with MKMMA

In Og Mandino’s Scroll V we read, “I will waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortunes, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart, for why should I throw good after bad?” And also, “Yesterday is buried forever and I will think of it no more.”

I have given this a great amount of thought, and I believe I have lived my life true to these words. 

However, I have a sister that has not. About 48 years ago, she and another sister were in a terrible accident. One perished, but the one that survived could never move on. The impact of this has devastated her life.

If only she could have understood that this one “ache of the heart” should not have defined her, maybe she would have had a better life.

I only tell this story to show how precious our time is, and the wisdom of moving on, letting go of our yesterdays, so we can live in the moment and not  destroy the last pages of our lives.

I do feel we should let the yesterdays go, but keep the lessons, so we won’t have to learn them again.

I’ll close with the words of Jesse Winchester, “Life is just too short for some folks, For other folks it just drags on.”

Peace and Aloha, Steve

  1. Steve, your blog was very touching and your example of Michelle was so true, of not letting something go in order for you to move on. You are an amazing blog writer and I am thankful to get a chance to read your inspirations each week. Thanks for being so open and sharing from your heart.
