The motto of the state of Wisconsin is just one word – Forward.
That tends to be the best direction to focus our thoughts and actions, wouldn’t you agree? Unlike our vehicles and TV’s, our lives don’t have a reverse or rewind function.
Yesterday might be full of monumental successes or epic failures. Chances are, there’s plenty of both. Today we use those two realities as valuable memories and experiences to learn from and help us grow.
We consult our past so that we’re prepared for what’s happening now and what arises in the future. But we don’t go back. Not just because we shouldn’t, but because we can’t.
Welcome to a new day… Forward.
