Tim gives a concise yet thorough approach to processing our past. We could all use this advice.
I heard it said while watching Disney’s Meet the Robinson’s a few years back. It’s a great movie with a quirky but lovable family, an antagonist you’ll love by the end of the movie, and this mantra, “Keep moving forward.”
I’m a forward thinking person but I also have a deep love for the past. It’s not that there aren’t some really great times in the past that we can visit from time to time, but staying there hinders how we handle the here and now. The past is not all good, and it’s not all bad either.
Often it’s our interpretation of what we experienced that is more real to us than what actually took place.
On the flip side, not all of us have a past that we think is worth remembering. Mistakes were made. Fortunes were lost. The breakup happened. The knee injury… you get it.
