But it’s also important to heed the lessons of moments passed—to learn from heartaches and sorrow, mistakes and misfortunes, to be humbled by success, shame, disappointment, and love.
It’s important to have a place to grow from, a place you never want to return to, a person you never want to be again.
Yet out of this comes the acknowledgment (by contrast, if nothing else) of what you DO want to become, where you DO want to go in life. And it’s this focus that drives you, inspires and invigorates you, reminds you of why.
But only so much time can be spent planning for or worrying/daydreaming about the future… just as only so much time can be spent pondering (or reliving, mourning, romanticizing, etc.) the past.
So it’s about finding that perfect nook between the two, in the here and now, if only for moments in the day. To just be. Without all the rest.
(Damn, I really need to meditate more.)
