My Sunday Quote of The Week...

You can’t reach for anything new if your hands
are still full of yesterday’s junk.
~ Louise Smith

You’ll crash driving on the highway if you continuously stare at the rear view mirror…

Does this make sense to you? Does this make this Sunday quote in full perspective for you? This example just tells me that we should mostly focus on what's ahead of us, on our future. I’m not saying erase the past and what we’ve just experienced (good or bad) what I am saying is only look back occasionally when we cross paths again or when we need to remember the lessons learned.

I am the first to say, I have not made it to this point in my life without my own fair share of “junk”; and while the “junk” I have accumulate thus far is most likely not the last bit I will gather; my goal and objective is to make sure the “junk” does not leave a lasting impression on my life other than teaching me the “lessons” I need for no do overs. You can't ignore the past because it does exist and it is relevant to the person you are now and the one you will be. What you can do is change your perspective on past actions and outcomes.
While in the midst of a compromising position, while recapping on a situation, while regretting a decision, make sure you put the circumstances and results you find yourself in into perspective.  Perception is everything and how we choose to perceive something or some events can empower or cripple us. You will not be able to move on (forward) if you are still holding on to something and refuse to let go. It probably means you have not fully accepted the outcome and learned the lesson you need to learn and move on.

Don’t consider your past as your enemy; use it to make a better, wiser you by leaving the “junk” behind...
