Time moves fiercely forward. Moments from childhood that seemed to take an eternity to pass are remembered in fleeting glimpses. We dreamed and moved on, perhaps never having the courage and fortitude to pursue the dreams before us. Maybe we were looking too hard for something on the outside, when we should have been looking inside.
As the times of our lives pass by, we learn. We lived through things that should have killed us, and we learned they really did make us stronger. We raised families, pursued degrees, started careers and lived our lives the best we knew how. We laughed. We cried. We won. We lost.
And, sometimes, we look back at the choices we faced and the decisions we made, and we wish we knew then what we know now because we would have done a better job making plans and choosing our paths. Even so, we take comfort in the knowledge that we did learn, and we seek opportunities to share with others the wisdom we have gleaned.
We find peace in the knowledge we have gained that, whether the decisions we make today or tomorrow turn out to be the right ones, they are the BEST ones because we will either see great success, or we will learn something new and be even wiser in the future.
And there goes time. Moving fiercely on.
