Life is like a car.
A car’s main design is take us from place A to place B. We drive toward our destination. On the cars are mirrors which help us navigate through traffic and to help us to see what is behind at all times but at the same time they can also be a distraction. If all your attention is focused on the mirrors on your car, you lose focus on what is in front of you and you might crash. This is life. We are designed to move forward and we look back to the past to learn from past mistakes so we don’t crash and burn again. But if we fixate or dwell on the past, it will prevent us from moving forward in life towards something greater.
