The other day I had the privilege of going for a run with my youngest brother and my youngest daughter. We don’t see him very often because we live so far away, and running gave us time to connect just the three of us.
We ran. We laughed. We joked. We connected.
The conversation moved to something that we had just passed by.
It was then my daughter provided a bit of wisdom.
“It is hard to look backwards when you are moving forward.”
A simple statement.
A profound idea.
Sometimes the past isn’t satisfied with not being the star of the show.
Our lives are in the second or third act, but that first act keeps walking back on stage, interrupting and inserting itself into the present.
She was right.
It is hard to look backwards when you are moving forward.
Just think about what 2015 might be if we keep that in mind.
