The future is scary, but you can't run back to the past because it's familiar. Yes, it's tempting, but it's a mistake. Don't stick with what you know just because you know it, you've got to leap and let your momentum carry you if you want to go places!
I like much in this quotation ...not the least the part about the crown. After a while I looked in the mirror and realized ..wow after all those hurts, scars and bruises, after all of those trials, I really made it through. I did it. I survived that which was supposed to kill me. So I straightened my crown ..and walked way like a boss.
