Don’t dwell too much on the past, you’ll never remember it for what it really was. Hindsight is 20/20. When we look to the past, we see through reality distortion goggles. These goggles will make the good times seem better and the bad times seem worse than what they really were. I think the beauty of time is that it keeps moving forward, no hiccups. Time has no memory, we created history classes for that. Put this year, and every moment that has passed, where it should be– in the past. There is no use thinking back to how things were except if you are reminiscing with friends on the good times you’ve had.
Wherever you are at in your life is where you are. No more, no less. The only thing to do is keep moving forward. Becoming immobilized by the past never has gotten me very far and it won’t get you very far either. It is like looking in the rearview mirror to drive. If you keep your eyes behind you, you won’t be able to see the beauty in front of you.
Don’t wait for the New Year for a new beginning. Every moment is a chance for a revival of your spirit. Lift yourself. Don’t keep looking in the rearview mirror, things are always different than they appear.
