In Others’ Words: Regrets
“You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.” ~Unknown
When you think about it, that quote makes a lot of sense.
Focus on the past? There’s no way you’ll achieve forward motion into the future. Keep looking back over your shoulder? You’ll miss the opportunities waiting for you here and now.
You get the point.
But do we? How often do we waste precious minutes and hours mulling over the memories of times past instead of moving on to today … and tomorrow? Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for savoring memories. I love a good stroll down memory lane, arms linked with beloved family and friends.
But as the saying goes: (All of) that was then. (All of) this is now.
In Your Words: Whatcha’ been reading? Is it time to turn the page on a certain life chapter? Time to focus on the next chapter in your life? Just for fun: Anybody catch the “that’s peculiar” part of the photo for today’s post?
