“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” – Thomas Jefferson
There’s something to be said for that. Actually, there’s a lot to be said for that.
Like, why do we allow ourselves to dwell on what has been instead of pushing ourselves forward? That forward momentum is needed to get us anywhere in life, whether it comes to work or our personal relationships.
Constantly looking back slows us down and drains us of energy. I remember being told in gym class (back in the day!) to keep looking forward while racing because looking back will slow you down. Why don’t we take this into account in our personal lives as well?
I don’t have the answer for that but I can tell you I’m going to start being more aware and pushing forward. I’m planning to win this race and not let my past hold me back any longer.
So why not let go of a little something weighing on you from your past and put that added energy into where you want to go; those dreams for your future.
