The Rear View Mirror

For those of you who drive a vehicle know exactly what I am talking about.  When you are driving you frequently may look in your rear view mirror.  It is not something you do all of the time.  But it is something that most good drivers do quite frequently.  If you are like me, it something you definitely do when you have to hit your brakes and especially when you have to hit your brakes hard.

Looking in our rear view mirror is necessary to understand what is going on around us.  It gives a gauge.  It is no different from life.  In our life we must look in our rear view mirror to see what is going on.

  • How did I get here today.
  • Why did I get here today.

Just like in your car, the rear view mirror is not something you look at very long.  Looking to the past for a quick moment is always good, but don’t dwell on it.  Look forward.  As we start another week in this eighth month of the 2014, I am looking forward.  I am looking so far forward in an attempt to design the life I want to live, the passions I want to pursue and be around others that are doing the same thing.

Enjoy your week and only look in the rear view mirror long enough to be aware of what is going on around you.
