Genesis 19.26. 
"But his wife looked back from behind him and she became a pillar of salt"

Pillar : A structure used for decoration
Salt : A colorless solid.

Sometimes memories of places and times in our lives are a beautiful thing, Some memories bring back pain you once endured, and some bring back times you'd rather forget. Taking a step back into your old life and breathing the air you once knew too well,  is somewhat painful but at the same time, it gives you a sense of achievement. I'm not usually one to dwell on the past and let it destroy me, but the fact of the matter is, looking back and getting dragged into the past does destroy. It simply does turn you into someone who is colorless, lifeless and only there for people to look at, and keep walking.

 I've outgrown the past, I'm no longer the person I used to be back then. I've outgrown the people who we're once a significant part of my life, and they have only made up a small part of this massive journey called life.
All the hurt, the disappointment and the tears have made me the person I am today, and even though I may not be perfect, I am stronger because of it. I can look back, and say 'I'm better then that ' and happily leave it behind and never look back.
