stopped at a red light by an overpass, backdropped by a pure gray sky lies a one way sign alongside the uplifted road, surrounded by uninhibited creeping ivy that sprawls rampant around the manmade struture.
one way.
i stop to contemplate the depth of such an accidental philosophy.
one way. Life is one way. forward. you only have one choice. forward. you dont move forward, you leave yourself behind. You cannot, as hard as you try, go back to the past. you cannot embrace the past as the present. you can only embrace it as the past, gone and left only to memory. only as a part of your story..
I love my past. As much as i miss it, the present, the future is just as potentially beautiful. we don't know if it will be as good, so i tend to cling to those memories.. but i remember, that the beauty is in moving forward, in making new beautiful memories, and loving the time i have now. someday ill look back on now and think about how awesome it was.
so what the fuck is the reason in missing the past?
the past drives you forward. at least, it should. do not hold on too hard to the past. embrace it, love it, and leave it. the future, the present, the potential of now, that, will be forever more beautiful.
life is one way.

How to move forward when you dun even know what is ahead of you?
How to move forward when you have lots of obstacle blocking you?
I dunno how to move forward anymore

That's the good thing that you don't know what's ahead of you, otherwise you wouldn't do anything at all.
And as for obstacles, remember that by taking out just one stone at the right place the walls will fall.
And sometimes you have to move backwards to go forward.

Evan, if you could bottle your thoughts you'd make millions. We can analyse our pasts, but we certainly can't relive and relive them as if they were the present. It's hard to remember that sometimes, though.

that means alot to me tina.. ultimately, thats what im going to do. i believe i can. i hope life is treating you beautifully dear miss, and im happy i can help out in any way i can.

Jenn, all i can tell you is you have to figure it out for yourself.. i could spend a year waxing philosophical, but you have to experience and understand it yourself.
so if i could tell you anything, i'd say never give up the search, and the shortest path to understanding is pure self-honesty.
good luck.
i love you.

wishing you all well.
