As you continue Blazing Your New Trail into the Next Phase of your New You Life, there may be random thoughts that pop up. Thoughts like, “Maybe I should just give up and run back to my Old Life.” What? Huh? After all You’ve Been Through? Why?
We always think of paths as things that move us forward. But some days are just hard, right? Self-doubt, tough decisions, it can be stressful. And even though most days we are happy our lives took the path away from the Loveless Life, sometimes we just wonder what would happen if we turned around. Took the path back. Wouldn’t that be easier than coping with all this “newness”? Didn’t the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz tells the confused Dorothy that “Some people do go both ways” as he pointed forward and back?
It’s crazy, this thought of going back thing, but not exactly for the reasons you might think. Not cause he’s left you, so there’s no Old Life to go back to. That’s too obvious. The main reason there’s no going back is YOU.
You’re not the same woman you were before. Living in pain, anger, doubt and fear. You’re passed that, or on your way to being so. You wake up feeling hopeful, instead of harassed and diminished.
So stop the Look-Back! Turn your head around and face the future. The One of Your Own Making. And when you do, you’ll feel a smile inside. Because “There’s no place like (Your New Happy) Home.”
