A Scar, A History

It is better to be defeated standing for a high principle than to run by committing subterfuge. – Grover Cleveland

You may be thinking about my previous post about my marathon wristband.

Do you think a scar is a bad thing?

Nothing is good nor bad. Unless you give a meaning to it.

A scar can be a constant reminder. A painful reminder. A reminder on the struggle, the pain, and the recovery.

A scar isn’t necessarily bad.

What is a future without a past? What are we humans if we forget on our history?

We should always look forward, to anticipate what bright future that we will enjoy. While we should constantly look back, to appreciate the struggle we once have.

We should forgive, but never to forget.

The wristband. It tells the story of  the efforts that I didn’t put in. The preparation that I was lacking in. The determination that was failing.

We should forgive, but never to forget.

 

As with everything, we see things through our lens, our understanding, our beliefs.

Do you view the scar as it is? Or do you view the scar as something that you can improve on – for you, for your loved ones, for the society?

Let’s make an informed choice and decide to make the world a better place. And it all starts with you  – We should forgive, but never to forget.
