Making your way forward

Looking longingly at the past? Perhaps we think that life was happier or simpler then.

When you're driving a car, you need to keep looking ahead. Of course, you'll glance occasionally in the rearview mirror. But to get anywhere, you'll have to look ahead. As with cars, so with living.

We're sometimes drawn into the trap of looking longingly at the past. Maybe the house is filled with heirlooms that we've become overly attached to. Sometimes we get bogged down going over past regrets, or even past accomplishments. Whatever form the backward focus takes, it can get in the way of progress.
