Still stuck in the past?
They say a change is as good as a rest and so for me, when I am tired, I stop doing what I was doing before and look for another distraction. One of the distractions I enjoy is reading clean wholesome jokes as a way of relaxing my mind.
I recently stambled upon an interesting joke which I have shared with you here below:
A guy from England, named John, had just arrived in New York for the first time and took a taxi to get to his hotel. Being in New York for the first time, he had alot to admire and so when they passed the great great statue of liberty, John tapped the taxi driver on the shoulder to get his attention so he could ask him a question about the impressive building.
Unfortunately John's action scared the driver so badly that he lost control of the wheel and nearly hit a shop and almost ran into a home. By the time the driver finally managed to control the wheel, John had totally forgotten the question he wanted to ask and all he could ask was: "What happened?"
The driver replied: "It's not your fault and I sincerely apologize for what just happened. You see, this is my first day as a taxi driver, and you are my first client actually. For the last 25 years, I have been driving a hearse..."
Truth be told, most of us are like this Taxi driver. We carry so much baggage from our past that we find it almost impossible to make progress in our current lives. Some of us are carrying heartbreaks from past relationships, making it impossible to have new healthy relationships with other people. Others have been burnt by business associates, making it hard to trust any other person who comes in the name of business. The past has instilled a certain type of fear in us that unless we let go and make a conscious decision to have a fresh beginning, we will be accidents waiting to happen.
Please don't let you past dictate your present or your future. Leave it exactly where it should remain; in the past.
