You don’t know where you’re going. You only know where you’ve been. And you shouldn’t pay too much attention to either direction.
Most of us focus on our past regrets and future dreams. And those are useful.
One can be learned from and one can inspire you.
But when the mistakes of the past are left in your mind too long the guilt you feel turns into shame.
And when you look up at your dreams for too long your hope turns into an impossibly high standard you could never meet.
The place we don’t look at enough is our current situation, how it could be slightly better, and that it’s within our power to make it so.
Do this and your past will be a friendlier place when you take the time to look, and the future will be brighter.
