The strength of a man is in his ability to move on without being held hostage by circumstances and through the recognition of new horizons. Even though others would want to remind him of the lesser moments, the moments become memory unless you choose to make it current reality. It is by choice that we allow the past to consume today. While the new may shake the comfort zone, everything happens for a reason and causes a resolve for change. Soon we appreciate that defining moment which influences our determination to relook, redress, and move on!
