In those seldom moments when there is time to think about the past, you still have the choice to dwell or move on. The past cannot be taken away. It is part of you. Scrape off the sweet parts and devour them. Sprinkle honey on the sour parts—they will caramelize and be easier to swallow. Conquer the past and consume it joyfully. Feed your soul the delicacies of what was and whet your appetite with what can be.
