Yesterday Is Gone

Hey! So I just got back from a weekend retreat with my church and God has been telling me some things lately and I've been super excited to blog again! So, my church goes on this weekend "camping" trip every year (We stay in cabins so its not real camping) and last year...well, to sum up last year: it was pretty much the best weekend ever especially for some certain people. We made a lot of new friends and bonded and had really great fellowship. We were also really crazy and had a ton of fun. So this year we wanted to make it just like last year. But last year we never planned it; it just happened. You can't really plan things like that. But we tried to this year and...let's just say it didn't go as we had planned. We had been waiting all year to do it and our plans got ruined. Nothing went the way we had wanted it to.

   So while everyone was sad that it didn't go the same way, I changed the way I looked. It wasn't last year. It never will be. But I looked at what was happening then and now. Sure, we didn't do what we did the year before but this was a new year. Things change. This year has been a year of change for me. I hate change. But God has been teaching me to let go of the past and look forward. Yesterday is gone. You can't go back, you can't change anything. It's good to reflect on things but you can't live in the past. Look at what you have now and all you have to be thankful for! Look forward! There is nothing you can do to change your past or go back to it. Be thankful it happened, but you can't live in your memories. You must move on. It took me a while to realize that but today is a new day. Move on!

   Sorry that was so short. I really was expecting it to be long. Thanks for reading!
