It is so simple to look backwards at the past with hopes of recourse and a desire to rectify what has already happened. In the majority of cases, this proves to be water under the bridge with limited, or in most circumstances, no opportunity for rectification in helping you to live a better life.
By choosing to look at the past, rather than staying in the present and focusing on what can be accomplished in the moment, you ultimately enter a loop of insanity. The internal video in your mind plays over and over again, taunting and teasing you with the prospect of going back in time to change a decision. This creates a doggedly determined perspective to rectify rather than to proceed into the future with a proper game plan.
The key to growth is awakening to that understanding and a recognition that the only pathway that makes any sense is moving forward with intent, dedication, and a clear mind that has accepted the past for what it is and allowed a new opportunity to mature as you move forward.
Everything else, in my personal experience, is just mental torture that is wholly unnecessary and incredibly unproductive.
This COVID-19 crisis has given all of us an opportunity to take inventory of what is most valuable in our world, to wish and hope that something different had happened in the past, and to expect to live in a brighter future as we emerge. That brighter future will only happen with our intent and focus on what is possible versus what has already transpired as what was.
Wishing you a vibrant Tuesday full of new possibilities!!????
