When That Horse Has Left the Barn

My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically. _Stephen Hawking

Something I’ve noticed about people and their regrets. When asked about what they regret most, people seem to focus more on things they regret not doing rather than things they regretted doing.

I get it.

No matter how much people may try to comfort us and encourage us, we all know instinctively that the opportunity of a lifetime does not last a lifetime.

In spite of what they say, there does indeed come a time when it is too late to have a happy childhood…or a happy anything.

No matter how dear the relationship, there will come a final goodbye.

Doors do close.

All roads do not actually lead to Rome.

But…

You can get somewhere from here.

Maybe that horse of opportunity has left the barn.

All the pining and self-recrimination in the world won’t bring it back. But…

…you can ride another horse.

The ONE THING for today: The flip side of every ending is a new beginning. No matter where you are, you can get somewhere from there.

The issue is: Will you and where will you choose.

Time to get moving…forward.

You can do this!
