You Were A Different Person Then
You can’t go back to yesterday because
you were a different person then.
While we can reminisce about the past or even brood about how we wish it had played out differently, we can never go back.
And we shouldn’t want to!
The past, no matter what the event or experience, has changed us. We are no longer the same person. We have changed. The person we are today couldn’t possibly fit into the person we were.

When life’s got you down and you need a pick me up, head over to Monday Motivation for all the smiles you could ever want!
I love this because it’s so true. There are so many past me’s in the past too.
Hear, hear! Too all the me’s and the me’s to come!
I just love “Alice in Wonderland” and I couldn’t resist popping over from Merry Monday to thank you for posting this wonderful Monday motivator that reminds us about the complexity of the person and our human experiences. Have fun! – Jerusha, CitrusSwirl.com
I’ve had a little thing for Alice myself lately. Thank you for stopping by =)
Oh how right you are…or this quote is! It’s interesting how thinking about my life before and wondering what or how things would be had something been different, is hard to do. I can’t really imagine what life would be life had Hun and I met sooner than we did. Yet, I also can’t imagine my life now if they weren’t in it! :)
I ponder it myself. When we think back with ‘what if’s’ & how we could have changed things, its hard to imagine that our right now wouldn’t be how it is. And I’m happy with now =)
Absolutely….we change every day. Each decision we make takes us in a different direction.
Thanks for linking up to Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.
Hii! I love your blog!! I love Motivational Monday Posts and this one is amazing. I totally agree that you change as the days come and dreaming about yesterday is just counterproductive. It’s important to accept yourself everyday and give yourself room to grow and make new choices and even mistakes, but you can’t do that if you smother yourself with the past.
I nominated you for the creative blogger award :)
Thank you Giselle! That made my night! Popping over to check that Creative Blogger Award now. Guess I have to get more creative…
I have not heard this quote before but I love it. It is something I need to keep in mind.
I went on a big Alice in Wonderland kick and found all sorts of fun quotes/lines. Thanks for stopping by!
Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful quote with us at the Merry Monday link party. I hope you’ll join us again this week! Sharing your post on Twitter!
You’re welcome! See you tomorrow!
