“Watch where you’re going, not where you’ve been”

This morning I overheard Marijo tell our Grand-daughter, Ashlyn, “Watch where you’re going, not where you’ve been”.  She was looking at something in the room she was leaving and almost ran into the door that was standing partially open.

It’s possible to get so focused on our accomplishments (Or failures) from the past that our ability to navigate the path in front of us get’s compromised.

I have to mention the other side of the coin, lest someone forget who’s writing this. It’s true there’s also wisdom in reviewing the past. Learning what worked, and what didn’t. The problem can come when that becomes our focus.

Keep the past in mind, but focus on the future. I think Ashlyn got some very good advice this morning. … me too.
