We all wish, at times, we could rewind the time that is lost, wasted, long gone by... This was the wish I woke up to this morning on the last day of my summer holiday, and the realisation that followed a second after that, the wish is futile. Yet we, mankind, are at times so obsessed with what is in the rear view mirror that we forget to look ahead; mourning the time gone by and the past, we miss the time which is now, the present.
Use the rear view mirror to learn from past mistakes, remembrances, regrets. Do not squint to see what is too far behind to see. Then look ahead and face the new day dawning.
'All that belongs to yesterday has gone with yesterday,
Today is the time to say something new.'
Jalaluddin Rumi, 13th century mystic and Sufi poet
