I read a story of a tourist driving a car overseas, down a tight windy road, in an impoverished neighborhood. Out of nowhere, a truck crashed head-on into him. The tourist is now pinned into the car, and believed to be dead. The driver of the truck saw how bad the damage was, and left the scene in a hurry. To everyone’s surprise, the man in the crash lived but he suffered a broken neck. After several surgeries, and years of rehabilitation, the man was able to walk again and move about. He decided to go back overseas and find the man that broke his neck. He simply wanted the truck driver to know that he was alive. Hopefully, this would bring some peace to the truck driver’s heart. After year of searching, he found the truck driver’s house. He walked up to the door and knocked. The truck driver came to the door and said, “Can I help you?” The man said, “I am the man you crashed your truck into years ago.” I just wanted to let you know that I lived. The man said, “So what,” and slammed the door. THE MAN WAS BROKEN HEARTED AND HERE IS THR REASON WHY.
HE WAS DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE, HE REALLY WANTED TO HEAR THE TRUCK DRIVER SAY TWO WORDS, I’M SORRY. The truck driver said, “so what!”
1. Sometimes that which is in our PAST is there for a reason. It should be left buried.
2. Sometimes your quest to find out WHY, can cause you to ABANDON all that GOD, and others have done for you.
3. Sometimes SEEKING and FINDING some answers can make your life WORSE than it was before finding out.
4. STOP FOCUSING on what and who wasn’t in your life. BE GRATEFUL for who was and still is.
5. Everytime I look back, I run into something in front of me and HURT MYSELF. If every time you look back you walk away hurt, STOP LOOKING BACK. (Bike riding proves this.)
6. Obsessing over past can cause you to miss present opportunities .
SOMETIMES IT’S GOOD TO LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE!!
During a banquet in my honor, my Dad leaned over to me and said , “Stop worrying about those people who are not here, and be GRATEFUL for those who are.”
