If you don't look forward to looking forward, how will you ever get past your past?

You ever feel like Life is just hitting you on the back of the head?

That's probably because you're too busy walking backwards into the future.

I know that hindsight is 20/20 and the past has tons to teach us... but if we keep staring at it, we'll only know where we're going until after we've already been.

So what keeps us from looking forward?

Fear of the unknown, perhaps? Past hurts making us leary of being hurt again? Unfulfilled desires dying like rotting fruit on the vine?

(All of the above, right?)

Well... Stop it!

You'll turn your life around by turning around.

Stop fearing something that probably won't happen. Stop thinking that just because something has happened before that it has a right to happen again.

It's not that your best years are behind you. It's that the only years you KNOW are behind you. They'll only be the 'best' if you stop aiming for better.

Face forward fearlessly.

And keep the light on!
