Many people say to 'not look back'. I've gotten the advice to move forward many times in my life and yet I think one needs to look back from time to time. How else can we prevent repeated mistakes that we have made? Also, don't you want to know what may be coming from behind?
Perhaps life is like driving. The driver is suppose to look forward, to both sides, and backward. If we aren't paralyzed doing all that looking as we drive, why do I become paralyzed in life when I try to look in ONE direction?? The above was taken on my way to work this morning. Looking in my rear view, side mirror I could see the potential danger approaching. And yet, behind me was some beauty as the sky was beginning to light up. Ahead of me was darkness with no activity on the road and yet behind me there was movement, "life". Conundrum. If I slow down to let "life" catch up to me, it may pass me by. And I don't want that either.
