past by ErinBird past by ErinBird
"the past is a nice place to visit , but certainly not a good place to stay ." - unknown

Memories are special , and they are lovely to reflect back on and remember the good moments in your life ! But , make sure you don't live in the past - make sure to move on . For example , if you were in a relationship and you broke up with your partner , it is nice in a way to look back on those special moments you had with them , but don't live your current life always wishing you could go back to that relationship . Move on . You'll probably find someone new if you move forward in life . Life goes on - so don't get stuck behind !

The pages in the background were actually pages ripped out from my old diary . I like to have diaries as I find it a good way to vent my anger/stress/pain out by scribbling my feelings all over the pages , but reading the diary again made me feel quite sad , so I tore the pages out , not wanting to read them again and feel sorry for myself . Before I threw them away I used them for the background of this photo , and whilst taking the photo I realised , the diary is similar to the quote: it's fine to look back on the past , just don't live your life stuck there - move forward .
(not my quote)

It would be a lot easier if the past wouldn't jump at you when you least expect or want it, but still true :D
I personally carry memories of my mom around and use em when I need em - ironic, by reflecting back to her and her attitude, I move forward
I think this is a great way to "artsify" this quote - simple, effective, touching.
Definitely a :+fav:

Funny thing about that...I read in a serious psychological journal that repressed memories might actually not be such a bad thing.  A person has repressed those memories for a reason (usually something extremely traumatic), and it's pointless to keep dredging them up and re-living them in the name of "therapy".  They're there, they happened, but you're still alive.  Life is probably better.  It's good to just let them fade into the past and move on.
