The road to the future, for what does it truly hold?

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA         You know your getting old when you remember a movie from twenty six years ago as if it was yesterday. The movie was called Back to the future and one of it’s stars was Micheal J Fox, who played the role of Marty McFly. I was twenty five when this movie came out, I remember the date that was put into the famous car and time machine, but if I may be honest, never really thought deeply into this date of 10/21/2015 until today and all the hype being made of this.

As we walk our paths along this journey through life, it’s what we do in the present that determines all our futures, it’s okay to reflect back in time to see what we did wrong, what we did right, so we can make the necessary changes, so we all can make our futures bright and be stronger and better as we move forward. We all have our flaws that we want to forget, as some of these flaws brought great pain whether physical or mentally, also with these flaws we suppress all the pain in order to relieve ourselves from the hurt, we then become someone of which we truly are not. When we have become that stranger to even ourselves, we then look into the mirror one day and say to self, who are you and where did you come from? Yes we all have certain flaws we have suppressed deep within our souls, but what the future truly holds for us then is the fact that, our brains and minds never forget and eventually all comes to a head within the future of all our journeys within our lives.

The movie Back to the Future was a great movie, as I can remember it twenty six years later. it kind of had most of us daydreaming of what does the future truly hold for us and can we really go back in time to change who or what we are now? Now that I am older I can see clearly that the past is the past and the present is what determines my future moving forward.

We all have things in the past we want to change, these things are gone and should not affect us right now in the present, what we should be focusing on is, being truly who we are and not something we truly are not because of some flaw, or a life event that made us into this fake self. When we stay true to who we are, feel the love of God within our hearts and souls, we will then love ourselves more, which will then help us love all those who are around us. With this love of self and those around us, we will then show more empathy and actually care more for each other and all the hate we see everyday, will simply disappear from all our paths along this journey through life. So Happy Back to the Future day and may this day help us all move forward along our journey, while we stay true to who we are, show our love and empathy from within us toward each other, so we all can walk our paths along this journey of life peacefully, as we live in the present to determine our own futures, of being better and stronger moving forward.

” The past does not determine our future, it is what we do in the present that truly determines who, or what we become in the future”

” It’s okay to reflect back on the past to see what went wrong and what went right, so we then can make the necessary changes in the present, as we all have a bright future”

” There are movies and there are movies that we never forget, this is what makes the movie great, or just simply only as good as we remember”

The light of the dark will always shine no matter what time of day.

“We the people of this Society, think of the light being daytime and the dark being the nighttime”.

To truly know what I mean by the dark, you need not look any further than the nightly news, We see daily all the ugliness going on throughout the World, groups like ISIS, all terrorism whether over seas or here domestically, all the tragedies happening to us from the weather patterns and big storms, then there are others throughout Mankind simply killing others just because they didn’t like the way they looked? This is just tiny compared to all the other darkness, that is going on around us everyday.

Darkness is a lot more than the sun going down for the night sky, to see the stars in the sky at night are beautiful, but “when you see stars from the darkness, this is not the darkness anybody wants to see”. When you look through the history of Mankind, we all have been through many of dark times, ” true there is light at the end of the tunnel”, but to see that light through the darkness, we need to stay strong to ourselves, not only believe in ourselves, but truly believe in the Lord God and Jesus, so they can be our guiding light through the darkness and really see that light at the end of the tunnel.

When we turn on the daily news and see all the darkness around us, or even within our communities, this is enough for us to stay within ourselves, not reach out to those in need, put forth a piece of us that doesn’t really show who we really are, just to try to protect ourselves from this darkness. We then move forward while we numb ourselves from everything around us, but as the darkness around us turns into light and happier times and because we numbed ourselves from everything, we then don’t change cause now this darkest of times has brought us a new comfort level, when we get into a comfort zone, it is very difficult to change and get out of one zone and into another.

True change will always make us happier and more peaceful, as we walk our paths along our journey of life. We neglect any kind of change, simply cause we fear the unknown, just like we fear the terrorists cause we don’t know who or where they are around us, or if they will try something the next time I fly? True change goes deep within who really are, it is getting in touch with our true feelings and emotions, showing more empathy and compassion of ourselves, towards all those around us, true change is getting in touch with ourselves and knowing what makes us tick, when something happens to us we know is wrong, we then look at the long term decision of it before we actually act upon it, as we see in the nightly news, nobody thinks of their actions and how they will affect them down the road, instead they take action, then after the fact get into a reactive mode, which only multiplies the problem, instead of being proactive, think through the action before you take the action, so not only make our own lives better, but make better of those around you.

Even through the darkest of times, when you truly believe in yourself as well as God and Jesus, you will always see the light at the end of the tunnel, true we may have to sacrifice something we love, so we can truly change from what we were, to who we really are, we will have to change from being reactive to proactive on our journey of life, yes this change can be tough at times, it may try to make us doubt ourselves? But as we stay true to who we are, be more proactive with strong communications of everything around us, totally believe in God and Jesus, no matter what that may cross our paths, we will always see the light in the darkest of times. Throughout Mankind there is nobody that traveled their journey without seeing this darkness, you just have to stay true to yourself, believe in God and Jesus, so not only we throughout Society, but we ourselves can walk our paths along our journey of life peacefully and become better and stronger no matter what may come across our paths.

” True change makes us better at everything we do, without it we fall short of truly being true to ourselves”

” Even through the darkness the light can shine bright, belief in yourself along with God and Jesus, will never let the light become extinguished”
