Life can be summarized as a journey right. A journey that has a start and an end. Throughout the journey, we learn new things. As we travel, we win – we lose, we cry – we smile, we rise – we fall. Sometimes I think it is good to look back and acknowledge if we forget to.
It is true that the survival of each human has an acknowledgment story. The blessings from God, the things we learned from our teachers, the sweat and tear of our parents, the caring by our partner and children. Even the rice we buy to eat starts from a paddy field.
Maybe acknowledgment has to be something we should carry within ourselves instead of giving like a statement at the end of a function. Then we have something in our mind too which we can return and like Socrates said in his last days-“Oh all other debts? How can I pay back?”
So as we go back and prepare to jump over a small stream to cross it, looking back in life gives that extra push to move forward. I am sure all of my fellow bloggers have read that line in the rear-view mirrors of our vehicles-“Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear”.Yes, we just need to acknowledge.
