Is There Something From Your Past That Holds You Back?


Many of talk about our past so wistfully.  As if it were the best time of our lives.  REALLY?  At 50, if my best years are behind me, then what do I have to look forward to?

Behind me is what shaped me but in front of me are the endless choices I have.  To take the road less traveled or to take the road with comfortable ruts for walking in.

I remember when my daughter was little, she would always walk forward but with her head turned looking behind: from where she came. One day in a large warehouse store, she ran into a steel support beam. I took that moment to inspire her. I kneeled down to her level and said, when you look behind yourself you can only see what you have already seen.  But in front of you is a world of choices and opportunities. Always look forward –  it is where your future is.

Look forward – that is where your future is….
