Blog Post # 4 – Face Forward

Too many of us head into the future facing the wrong direction.

We remember past failures.  Both our own failures and those of others.

We dwell on perceived slights, insults and grievances.

We rehash.  We obsess.  We refuse to forgive.

We spend our time looking in the rearview mirror.

We face backwards.

But the past, of course, is in the past.

Today, we have a choice.  A choice to face forward.

When we face forward, we see opportunity.

We spot chances to improve, to tweak, to tinker and create.

The whole world is out there waiting for us.  In all its beauty.

We can certainly acknowledge past failures, slights, insults and grievances.  These things may have harmed us deeply.

And so they did.

But if we want to move forward, we have to face forward.

Which way should we face today?
