“Memories are the key not to the past, but to the future.” Corrie Ten Boom
Our memories, strung together, make up the canvas of our life. They are often a way we hold onto the people or things we love and help us explain who we are. But, memories can also be a harness that keeps us stuck in the past and away from living the lives we most desire.
