How often do we look behind us to reflect on the past. Were they better times? Were they simpler times? or do we just need the memories to keep us moving forward. It is ok to reflect on the past and to some degree even dive back into it but happiness is not in the past but the decisions we make for our future. The future is uncertain for most and that gives us a golden opportunity to shape the true happiness we can only find in ourselves. We have our routines, our careers, our families but we also have dreams and goals. They are the things that will shape our future memories. Enjoy your thoughts of the past but don’t stop looking and planning for the future. It is in your control now.
