“I can’t go back to yesterday – because I was a different person then (Lewis Carroll).” Yesterday is an illusion, its only connection to reality are our memories and how we choose to interpret memories (e.g. photos, digital material). Where it’s happening is now. When we let our memories decide who we are or how we should act, we become prisoners to the past. We’re different now than we were then. We’ve paid our dues. We are free from our past. We have experiences that taught us important lessons. Let the past go and live today. Good things are coming your way. The only way you can see them is if you are looking ahead.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
