One Moment Can Change Everything

I cherish every moment I spend listening to you.  So often, you challenge my thinking and get me to look at things differently, which is precisely what you did earlier this month.  You had a caller who had experienced three deaths and found out her husband was cheating on her with another man.  She kept repeating to you, "It's just so hard."  Even after you gave an example of survivors of the Holocaust moving on, I still wasn't "getting it," and neither was she.

Then you suggested she look behind, look forward, look behind again, and then look forward, and a giant light bulb went off for me.  When you asked the caller if anything behind her went away when she was looking forward, that was my "aha" moment, and it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I realized how frequently I dwell on things or can't let stuff go.  I relive my past all the time.  That moment changed everything.  In the future, when I'm upset, I won't dwell on it.  I will simply look forward, put one foot in front of the other and move on. 

You impact my life every day in so many ways.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
