BACK ARROW


Do you ever wish there was a 'back arrow' for our lives like there is on the computer? How simple just to click on a button and go back to the previous page. But unfortunately (or should I say fortunately?) life doesn't work that way. Once we make a mistake, a wrong choice, speak an unkind word, make a foolish decision, we can never turn the clock back. We are stuck with the consequences.

But is this necessarily a bad thing? Mistakes are never good things, but nevertheless good can come out of them. If we use them to improve the future by learning from them, then they can lead to improvements in our lives that we would not otherwise have the benefit of. Better still is to take care when making decisions, when opening our mouths, when make choices without sitting down and counting the cost.

I think it's a good thing to have a back arrow on the computer, but I'm glad we can't do this in life. We would miss some rich learning experiences if we could just go back and opt out of the consequences of our actions. And I'm convinced that even if we could go back we would probably make the same choices all over again. Better to move forward into new things with what we have learned and use them as stepping stones to the future.
