When you drive down a road you won’t return to, the view behind you narrows until what was once there fades into history such as with life. –Marala Scott


It’s interesting how we’re able to hold onto negative experiences and give concentration to what happened instead of creating a solution to resolve those emotions. If you’re reading this, your life didn’t stop because of them. Regardless of what you think, you are meant to go on and persevere. Perhaps you can help someone else along the way. Allow experiences to make you stronger instead of weaker because God willing, you’ll have a long trip ahead of you and will need the strength you’re wasting on negative history. Shift your heart and mindset to make use of the life you have in front of you. Don’t dwell on the one behind you that can’t be altered in any capacity. When you drive down a road, the view behind you narrows until what was once there fades into history. Yes, the road may still be there, but it’s no longer in your future to travel.

  1. Reblogged this on and commented:
    Thank you Marala Scott for crafting this message. Marala reminds us that though we have a rear view mirror, our focus should be looking ahead.

  2. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful info specifically the last part I care for much. I was looking for this particular information for a very long time. Thank you and good luck.

  3. I love this because it’s inspiration to keep moving forward. A lot of the time we bring the past up because we have trouble moving on but that holds us hostage. We need to learn to let go and just use the past as experience for our next journey and the decisions we make later.

  4. Marala this is beautiful. We are so intent on holding on to the negative or bad things that happen. It takes alot of maturity to keep our heads up and look at these experiences as growth opportunities. That narrow road behind us can be a vital thread to a successful future if we allow it to be!
