Sight or Memory?

I came across this story, about a man who was slowly losing his memory. After a lengthy examination, the doctor said that a risky operation on his brain might reverse his condition and restore his memory. However, the surgery would be so delicate that a nerve could be severed, causing total blindness.

The surgeon asked, “So, which would you rather have, your sight or your memory?” The man pondered the question for a while and replied, “My sight, because I would rather see where I am going than remember where I have been.”

Our family,friends and even ourselves may be trying to dig up the past and keep us bound up in our failures. But be encouraged! Today is a new day! Today and every day we have a choice to make! We must choose to press forward and put aside our past. We must purpose to keep our eyes on the good/best, not on our successes or failures, but on what we can do today?!

Be free from the shackles of the past! Keep your eyes on the prize! (DJS)

  1. I have been brοwsing online moгe than 3 hours todaу, yet I never found any interеsting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Рersonally, if all web
    owners and bloggers made good content as yоu did, the net
    will be much more useful than eveг before.
