For many, a desire to be ahead of the game and a craving for all things modern diminishes the sacred memories of the journey they’ve taken to bring them to where they are today. Live for today has been overtaken by live for tomorrow. For many, the past has been trampled underfoot in the race to reach an uncertain future.
For some the past has been kind, but for most, what went before was a mix of good times and bad, laughter and tears, utter pride and deepest guilt. There remains much to learn from the past, especially the things of which we are least proud and try to put the back of mind.
So stop for a moment and sit a while. Fill your glass and drink with me to days gone by; days which helped us form the people we are today. Drink to the mistakes that made us change our path, not just the things of which we are proud. Let’s raise a glass to yesterday for without it there would be no today, and tomorrow wouldn’t exist.
Right, enough of that! Mine’s a scotch; what’s yours?
