Sometimes, as we get older we tend to look backwards and reminisce about the things we used to do.
Remembering when we…had our first kiss, our first real jewelry, our first everything and that first dance with the love of our lives. Remembering the place, the song, the mood-we take a quick journey back in time. Sometimes, we get so caught up in the past we forget about the here-and-now which causes problems for our future. Sometimes, we look backwards and begin to have thoughts of regret. Sometimes, in our backward glance, we discover we didn’t really like ourselves at all. And sometimes, we wish we could have changed much sooner than we did. Sometimes.
Sometimes, even when we reach that “golden time” in our lives where some would just give up on dreams, some of us–reach out even further into the future. We look ahead, not behind. We seek to accomplish every dream or goal ever set. We understand better than ever that time is not to be wasted, thinking about things that cannot be changed, but thinking about how we change what we can to make our tomorrow even better. It’s okay to remember the first dance, but it’s better to look forward to the last dance.
