“If you look towards the sun you will never see your shadow. It’s when you look away you will always be chasing it.” It’s easy to dwell on the past, it’s easy to dwell on our mistakes. It’s easy to count our failures and fallbacks.
Don’t dig up the past. Let the past stay behind you like your shadow and walk towards the sun. It’s when your walking forward you begin see your worth without being reminded of the old. You understand the definition of who you are. It’s when you are walking towards the sun that you begin to see life with different eyes. It’s when you are walking toward the sun that others see the sunlight in your face.
I hope the person who needed to hear this today understands the poetry.
