Don't Look Back

Hi Everyone, I hope you are doing well. I am doing good. I found myself looking back a few days ago about my life, losing my mothers, looking back on decisions I made. What should I have done, what should I have not done. Then I remembered a saying that made so much sense to me. If you look in the rear view mirror for to long or you will crash. How many of us go through this, not that we want to but it is a habit. It is so easy to look back and want to change or fix the outcome. We have to surrender to the fact that life will happen no matter how we try to control it. So the next time you find yourself in this place, meditate either informally or formally and try to retrain those old tapes. "May I live in the present", "May I forgive myself for the past if needed", "May I focus on the good and not the bad memories." With each regret,or lesson ask yourself what it may have taught you, forgive, forget, and move on.
Take Care,
Janet :)


  1. It is very cleansing to sit and take stalk at where we are and how we got there...how else can we embrace what we call life.

    It is all about continuing to move forward!

  2. That analogy about the car rear mirror is so true. Once in a while we will look back and ponder about the past. We can't take today with us and thus we need to move forward also. It is a wonderful idea to meditate and to retrain those old tapes.

  3. I totally agree with you. I try each day to live in the moment. Sometimes it is difficult but it is the only way to live. Great post.

  4. Every word is so true and so hard to live by however, we should keep striving to move forward this is a lovely blog.
