Where do we go from here? It is really up to us!

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers

Where do we go from here?There are times when looking back is counter-productive. A lot of time can be wasted placing blame or pointing fingers.

And it really doesn’t matter how we got to where we are. Even when mistakes have been made or there have been failures in the system, the big question is:

Where do we go from here?

Energy should be directed towards events which can be affected rather than wasted on rewriting history. Destiny is within our control if we choose to accept the responsibility of owning it!

Everything does NOT happen for a reason. Fate is self-directed and completely changeable. The “let’s wait and see” attitude doesn’t get the job done.

The future starts NOW! And where it takes us is completely of our own choosing.

Richard, I think looking back is helpful for learning the lessons, but dwelling there wastes a lot of energy when we should move forward.

Hi Richard: I am missing your fun hat from April 1st... It is always wise to look to the future.. but it is hard to sometimes not discuss the past.... like baseball games, the plays made......not that people do that of course... Ha! Gay

Hi Richard, When we look back..it is SO easy to say we wouldn't or shouldn't have done that. Hindsight is always something you have the benefit of after thinking things through and after the moment. I bet most of us would just do many of the same things if we had to choose again in that moment of our lives. Moaning and groaning about the negatives of things that may have happened in the past serve absolutely no purpose but to drive others crazy. Moving forward and to the future is the only way to go. "Everything does NOT happen for a reason"..love that!

LOL...one of my favorite sayings is "things do NOT always happen for a reason" - so this totally resonated with me and made me LOL. I am also very tired of "well, if it was meant to be..."  LOL

Richard... I totally love the fact the you say that we have control over our destiny.  I respectfully disagree that, EVERTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.  I completely agree with, The "let's wait and see" attitude doesn't get the job done.  also.  Love your thought provoking blog :)  Thank you.
