Why do we always focus on what’s behind us and never what the present has brought us or the future? Because the past has already happened. It’s easy to remind ourselves of what has already passed. It’s easy to remember the bad things that have happened but what about all of the good things that are to come? It’s not easy looking forward because our thought process always says “well this happened to me, so how can it get better?” but what about what’s to come? What about when you hit rock bottom? Things have to go up from there. It’s always easy to think about the negatives.
To be happy you have to focus on the positives. About what is to come, about how much you have to look forward to, yes it is hard sometimes. Yes its a struggle to overcome what has happened but that is in the past now. It’s okay to look forward to what you want to accomplish, your goals, dreams, ambitions. Love yourself enough to let the past make you, not break you. Make it be a push to make things better, not to be a burden.
Don’t ruin a perfect today by thinking about a bad yesterday. leave it where it belongs, BEHIND YOU!
