Life is lived forward but only understood backwards. It is only when we’ve lived through something that we can really understand why it took place. I’ve been doing a lot of this lately, reflecting on my own life and finding out things I never even knew. Not only that, it’s helping me understand myself better and understand my purpose and my path.
But don’t ever get so caught up in reflecting that you miss the here and now. Why mess up today worrying about tomorrow? Why spoil today worrying about yesterday? We can be troubled by what we do know and by what we don’t know regardless but the truth of the matter is the road you’re on in your life at this very moment – you chose it. It’s part of your curriculum. It’s your own unique path. The lessons on it are there specifically for you. Sure you’ll probably comprehend everything and piece it all together better after the fact, so a little reflection is positive. But don’t look behind you too long because the good stuff is all ahead.
