What I Choose To Be; What I Choose to Become

 

“I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.”
~ Carl Jung

 

The past is gone,
its footprints fade as the present
ebbs and flows along my life’s ocean.
With it goes the past hurts and triumphs
its losses and joys as well
The only use they have for me now
is as lessons that need not be learned again
It is what I encompass now that matters
and where I will take it.
Those who live in the past
reliving their glories
or remaining victim to their pain
are stagnant swamps
I would rather be the mighty ocean
flowing proudly into the future
living each day and then washing it away
with its sediment used to build anew
— G A Rosenberg

Quote of the Day – May 25 2012

“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.”
― Noam Chomsky

 

Making a better future, at least doing what we can to ensure it means that we have to surrender our powerlessness. It is so easy to say that we are at the mercy of the NWO, the powers that be, our pasts, our current economic status etc yet most of us ( I try to never say all because therein lies as big a trap as saying none) have the ability, have we but to claim it to not only make our futures better but to do things or say things that will help others to do the same.
