When you’re driving, you can’t properly drive forward when you’re always looking at the rear-view mirror. This is one driving lesson that could be applied to life as well. Holding on to the anger and bitterness of the past is a limiting factor that would shackle you in your trip forward. They say, we spend so long looking at doors that are closed that we don’t even notice doors that have been opened for us. So we tend to miss out on opportunities just because we are hanging on to things that are better left forgotten.
And sometimes moving forward is not easy, not because of the baggage we carry with us, but because the road ahead is stormy. And maybe this quote by will help you cope, “Once in a while, amidst all your bad days, you’ll have a good day. A great day even. Make sure you remember those days. Keep them safely in your pockets, maybe even a jar on your desk because you need to know that there are and will be better days. You need to remember how on those days you felt warm inside, like you’ve just drunk a hot cup of tea; like a small fire was ignited inside of you. Hold on to that warmth. And never let it go.”
