And isn't that what focusing on the past does to us? We ignore how good it is now and swear it must have been 'gooder' (as my lil cousin would say) in the past. Was it really though? Better back then?
And how can you truly move forward if you keep looking back?
I must confess, some of the mails i got this morning were great. Like one from a former assistant who now works in management. I did smile while reading some.
We can let the past be a reference that brings us joy or knowledge, but if the memory you are fixated on does neither, stop.
