Don’t Look Back, You’re Not Going That Way

Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.

Don’t look back on what could have been.  What should have been.

Don’t look back and ponder your regrets.

The past is the past.

You cannot change the past and you cannot foretell the future.  You need to make the conscious choice to stay in the present.

Be mindful of the present.

Cherish the present.

For if you spend your time replaying past events, you risk harbouring feelings of resentment, anger, hatred, guilt and sadness.

If you spend your time playing out the future, “what-if’ing” and worrying about things that are likely out of your control, you risk a life of anxiety, panic, depression, worry and sadness.

Trust me.

I know from experience.

Stay in the present.

Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.
