Leaving The Past And Moving Forward
Ever since my father passed away, all that we thought would last faded away. The riches? Gone. The lavish lifestyle is no longer existent. It hurts but our lives turned upside down. We were facing life in a different angle and it wasn't very pretty to see it in a different colored spectacle. We had seen life as rosy but the view from where we are now is bleak.
To this day, I have learned to swim against the current of my life's troubled past. Most times, I feel the invisible hand pulling me downwards but I always find myself fighting back. It is hard but my resolve is to be able to stand up again and regain the legacy that my father had built for us, even for just a mere fraction of what he had established for his children.
That is why I am looking forward to 2013 because I know that this year will be a better year for my family. All the struggles we have been through for many years since my dad died will be a thing of the past because it is our moment to shine. There are still obstacles along the way but I feel we will be victorious because we are one in this effort. We are all leaving the past and moving forward because that is what my father would love to see. And God the Father will only want the best for His children.
