If We Look Straight Ahead and Don't Look Back...

the past - past

...will it guarantee us that we won't run into something? Would you be willing to go forward and not look back from any past you've left behind in order to follow your dreams in life? Even how much it drives you so much even just to think of leaving your past and start over. How would you react?...

It will not keep us from running into things...sometimes we are distracted. I am trying to leave my past behind and go forward and it is not easy.

Yes true, it isn't really easy in doing it so but if it really needs to be done doing...then, either ways we must just have to moving forward or dwell still from our pasts.

In my experience, it is looking back at the past that can cause a lot of unnecessary stress. Learn from any mistakes and but then let the past go. It does not exist. What is done, is done and cannot be undone. Each morning I wake up and practice meditation and that meditation is a way of letting go of the past and looking at the reality of the present moment and letting the future take care of itself because I just do my best in each moment of now. :-)

That is so true derek, it's by letting go from all those pasts and just looking at the reality of what were living now, at the very moment of each life's can we truly go on and make the very best out of each life's.

i'll go forward and keep moving with my life. My past was only something to be learnt and do better in the future. I won't forget something that happend in the past. Every moment in my life is precious.

Right! making every moment in our lives more precious is what we need in order for us to have the courage to move on in life and whatever mistakes we've done from our past, we should learn from it but not to dwell from it. :-)

Hi add_im! I don't think I can move ahead or go forward without looking back. I need the past in order for me to be remindeed of the lessons learned. I owe my past for what I am right now...in moving ahead and reaching for my dreams, I think my past plays a very important role for me to achieve the goal I have. Well, that is just my view. Have a nice day and take care!

I would not go forward without looking back from any past I have left behind in order to follow my dreams of life because I think that looking back can sometimes help us step forward more smoothly.
