A Short Trip and Bubba Gump Restaurant
Recently, I took a short trip to Malaysia for 3 days. I spent most of my days and evenings shopping, eating and relaxing by a man-made beach. Also, I had spent 1 whole afternoon laughing away, competing in some water sports. The afternoon sun is extremely glaring but my face is beaming. It has been such a long while since I laughed like a kid again.
We had a wonderful dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant. Yes, it is a American franchise restaurant set up in KL city. We did not have a chance to eat in US on my previous trip, so I told myself that I must give it a try this time.
The whole restaurant ambience is fantastic and the waiters are friendly. It is like u are just been to a truely US restaurant. Because it is based on “Forrest Gump” concept, so you can see a lots of collection and quotes reminding you from the movies itself. Well, who can ever forget Forrest after you have watched the movie.
Upon the restaurant wall, I just happened to see this quotes: “My Mama always said you’ve got to put the past behind you before you can move on” A simple quote but with deeper meanings in it.
I have known people carrying the burden of their past mistakes, regrets and guilt with them. To prove that they are still living, they would never unload these burden. They would rather tied to their past than to move forward towards a better life. I feel that they are like living zombies feeding on to their past. They have lost the sight for future. They are just like a prisoner who has thrown the cell key outside.
I feel that all are just illusions that we create to trap ourselves. We should also open the key to unlock from our prison too. All we need to do is to forgive ourself and others that have hurt us. This simple act of love for oneself and others is our key to unlock ourselves from the invisible prison that we have created. It will lessen our burden. This will make our life journey a lighter and pleasant one.
Hence, are you ready “to put the past behind” and “move on” to a better life? Well, I am positive of it. And I am looking forward to my next trip. Cheers!
