It’s a curious thought, go forward while thinking about what’s past? Allow me to elaborate and possibly clear up any confusion that might exist.
We carry beautiful memories with us. They stay with us naturally. If I had to place a bet, I’d put odds on you experiencing a memory right now that makes you smile. Just the mere mention of positive moments in our past sparks to life those times our hearts were brought to life. We found ourselves smiling for no reason, possibly even during a moment where others were more ambivalent. Inevitably someone notices and asks the question, “What are you smiling about?” We can’t help it! So why fight it? This entry isn’t about clinging to the past like an anchor, far from it. This is about going forward off the momentum those positive memories afford us. When you set your goals this year, when you harness your willpower and when your ambition is engaged use every positive memory as fuel to your fire! We have it within ourselves to work smarter, not harder, to achieve happiness in this life. Follow your heart, let your common sense guide you and let all the positive moments in your life propel you into more joy in 2013! It’s ok to pull off the highway and look down the path in front of you to then cruise into something blissful. Just make sure you smile while you do it.
