Walking Backwards

Backward child

Do not walk backwards
to arrive at your future.
Leave the past where
it belongs…in the past.

Do not miss the sunrise today
worrying about the sunset later
for only this fleeting moment
is certain. Savor it, rejoice
in it. Please, please
do not waste it.

    Pat, thanks for this.
    Yes, it’s so true, that many of us “walk backwards”, living in the past, letting old stories block the wonders of today, of this moment.
    I appreciate your inspiring reminder.
