Rushing into the future with an eye fixed firmly on the past?

This is a bit late (computer upgrade just completed), but here's my thought for the New Year. In this moment of annual introversion, renewal and reassessment, it's important to remember that where we're going is not we've been. Even when we choose to deny or forget it, we're galloping forward into the unknown.

If keeping full attention on the past is like driving a car with eyes glued to the rearview mirror, peering forward is also problematic. Nobody can suss out what's coming next.

What remains is the present. That's a wonderful gift. So let's keep our attention on the moment. In 2018, may we all find ways to be present to each and every experience that comes along. Happy New Year, everyone!
