When driving, it’s important to look at the review mirror, but if you stare at it, you will crash.
The same principle applies to our lives. Yes it’s important to reflect on our past, but to stay focused on that for too long will keep us stuck.
If you find yourself in a low energy space, check-in and see if your focus has drifted off the present and into the past. I tend to stay a bit too long on Memory Lane when I’m feeling fatigued or under the weather. Turning onto What If Avenue and If Only Circle, only leads to depressing destinations.
I pull my rental car over and regroup. I reset my GPS to the present, a route that leads me to hopeful and exciting destinations. For I have a choice of which direction I follow, and I choose today.
