It's hard not looking back sometimes, isn't it?
We humans have a collective penchant for remembering bygone days fondly; longing for their return; comparing what was to what is.
Once in awhile, whether intentionally or not, we even rewrite a memory or two, #ItHappens
Shoot, occasionally we wish we had that really cool "hot-tub time machine" contraption featured in those two silly movies of the same name.
Never saw 'em but my friend Lori says the first one, at least, was hysterical. I digress.
Reminiscing is fine; honoring people and accomplishments from the past is wonderful; memorializing important historic events is a must.
But getting quick-sanded into staying in your own yesterdays too long; that's when it gets a little sticky, yo.
The thing about living in the past is:
It's sort of like driving on a really, really long road trip entirely in reverse. You might end up at your intended destination but not likely without some serious damage to yourself, your passengers, innocent travelers along your route, and your poor vehicle as you haphazardly make your way.
Life's way too short and beautiful to waste time looking at it solely through the rear-view mirror, Capisce?
Besides, you don't want to risk turning into turning into a pillar of salt at any given point on this journey, you dig?
