When you stop and look back over your entire life, does it look better where you have come from or where you are going?

I can't see very far ahead where I'm going, but I definitely don't think where I've come from is better. Every step you take in life is a lesson. Some are good lessons and some are very hard learned, but if you remember them well you'll always have a better future than your past, in spite of hard times you may have to go through.

It looks greener where I am going. I didn't find a lot of opportunities in my hometown, it's a very small city so I had to go to a bigger city, the capital of the country, to look for work. It worked out for me. Now I'm working in another country and earning more than I did before. I'm looking forward to migrating to Canada someday.

well, if you want to move forward you have to look positively on where you are going. otherwise, you won't be inspired to move at all. we always want our future to look bright and on this note, we take steps to move towards that direction.

Where I am going. Not saying that where I come from is bad but I hope to become a better person every day. I hope that my life contiunes to go good and get better with each day. I see myself in a better place financially where I am going. Take for example before I moved to PA I was renting. Now that I am in PA I own my house and a lot of land, I never could have had that in FL. I didn't get paid enough and the houses were very expensive. Now here in PA my pay went up by 6 dollars an hour (from what I did in FL for basically the same job) and I own my house. My husband and I both drive new cars and we don't want for much. I would hope that things would just keep getting better. I do expect a few bumps in the road but not too many.
