I heard Better Midler say (this morning) “I never look back. Never look back. Never look back. ‘Cause if you’re looking back, you can’t look forward. You can’t go forward.”
I am working hard at looking forward and not back. Much of this has a great deal to do with forgiveness. That is coming easier than I believed possible.
What is harder is forgetting. I question whether I should forget. I question whether forgetting is folly, kind of like when it’s said “those that forget history are doomed to repeat it”. So I wonder if I should remember but remember while looking forward and in a place of foregiveness.
It’s a work in progress. I’m a work in progress (smile).
