Why Looking Forward Isn’t Always Best

Some people say you should always look to the future and never to the past because you can’t change the latter. I’ve never fully agreed with that, because while it’s never a good thing to dwell on what has already happened, it’s still important to acknowledge where we’ve been…I actually blogged about that idea here. Then the other day, the below image crossed my wall on Facebook. Fewer words than my post, but oh, so powerful a reminder. Have a wonderful day, everyone! :)

    I tend to look at the past as how I would look at a rear-view mirror in the car. I look at it time to time but don’t really turn back to look.

      It is rather like that, isn’t it, Jyothsna? Except I do sometimes like to pull the car over to the side of the road and get out to look back and appreciate how far I’ve driven. 😉
