Looking Back

Don't look back.  Something might be gaining on you.

--Leroy Satchel Paige

Lingering on events out of our past prevents us from living here and now.  When we keep looking back, we cannot look ahead, which puts us in danger of missing opportunities or losing hope for better things to come.

When we make mistakes or do not achieve the success we'd anticipated, let's examine our actions at that moment, then take our lessons with us and move on.  We are who we choose to be - successful, competent, wise, and wonderful.  The future will become the present, so we need to anticipate and prepare for it.

There's a lot of truth in what you say, yet it can be deceptively simple. Time is a continuum in which the present as we know it becomes the past and will be the future as even as we speak of it. The distinctions tend to blur under scrutiny. The very act of thinking about the present and the future seems to have the capacity to change them. In retrospect, I think the same can even be said for the past. How strange that is.

There's no deception there. It is simple and straight forward.
