Don't Look Back, You're Not Going That Way

  • Don't Look Back, You're Not Going That Way -
    "As you travel through life there are always those times
    When decisions just have to be made,
    When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce,
    And the rain seems to soak your parade.
    There are some situations where all you can do
    Is simply let go and move on,
    Gather your courage and choose a direction
    That carries you toward a new dawn.
    So pack up your troubles and take a step forward
    The process of change can be tough,
    But think about all the excitement ahead
    There might be adventures you never imagined
    Just waiting around the next bend,
    And wishes and dreams just about to come true
    In ways you can’t yet comprehend!
    Perhaps you’ll find friendships that spring from new things
    As you challenge your status quo,
    And learn there are so many options in life,
    Perhaps you’ll go places you never expected
    And see things that you’ve never seen,
    And wonderful spots in between!
    Perhaps you’ll find warmth and affection and caring
    And somebody special who’s there
    To help you stay centered and listen with interest
    To stories and feelings you share.
    Perhaps you’ll find comfort in knowing your friends
    Are supportive of all that you do,
    And believe that whatever decisions you make,
    They’ll be the right choices for you.
    So keep putting one foot in front of the other,
    And taking your life day by day…
    There’s a brighter tomorrow that’s just down the road –
    Don’t look back! You’re not going that way!"
