My friend Caroline (pseudonym) said that she was so sad on December 31 that she wanted to cry and I knew why. I sent her this private message:
Okay, I have cried on the last day of the year a few times myself and I know why you want to. You are lamenting your lack of progress and achievement in 2015. But you are sad because you are looking into the past, back into 2015. Turn yourself the hell around right now girl and start looking into 2016. That is where your future is. 2015 is gone forever and you can't change that. But 2016 is where your future is and where your hope must live, so that is where you need to be focused. This is where the victory can be. Forward woman, it is the only direction that is worth facing.
Caroline is an intelligent, beautiful, woman. Bad choices and unfortunate circumstances have made her lose her self-confidence. The Road will not always be this rough her, she will win is she gives herself the opportunity. But you can’t travel forward on The Road very well, if you are looking backwards. You can’t go back, so why look back. The Road is ahead of you, not behind.
This is a new year, look forward my friends, look forward. Let’s walk together down The Road in 2016. I think I can provide some assistance.
