So I was watching short films the other day and ran across this one. I think the film is well-done and has an interesting message. Beware that you will not be left with feel goods and smiles after watching. So if you’re having a bad day, I would suggest you watch this another day. But it’s worth the watch… and I’ll do my best to bring you back up afterwards with some of my own thoughts.

Part I

Part II

“We cannot change what has already happened…”

This film moved me. As I continue to think about the message and the themes of this video, I have some thoughts stirring inside my head that I’d like to share with you. I love the little boys question to his father near the beginning of the first video when he asks, “What happened to grandpa?” and “Will he ever come back?” Such innocent yet sincere questions that I believe we all face at some point or another in our lives. What does happen to us when we die? I have another video that I would like to share that I fully support in the answering of this question.

I know that we can be together with loved ones forever. I know that through God’s plan, we can feel comfort now when we lose those we love. Heavenly Father loves us so much!

The next thought that I had about this film is that we always have choices to make to change our future. Like the quote above says, “We cannot change what has already happened.” I would like to add that we always have control over the choices we make in the future. Dwelling in the past will never get us anywhere. We can learn from the past but ultimately we have the ability today and tomorrow to have a new beginning. I love this quote found Here

“Each new day that dawns can be a new day for us to begin to change. We can change our environment. We can change our lives by substituting new habits for old. We can mold our character and future by purer thoughts and nobler actions. As someone once put it, ‘The possibility of change is always there, with its hidden promise of peace, happiness, and a better way of life.'”

Let’s make the necessary changes in our lives to be HAPPY! That’s what God wants! Don’t let passed mistakes weigh you down. Don’t let the previous would haves hold you back. Just CHOOSE now to start again. To get back up, and to fight back, and to have JOY!
