Monday Morning Motivator & Some Points to Ponder...    
Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long...
We keep moving forward. Opening new doors and doing new things, because we are curious…
And, curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

     ~ Walt Disney

New Paths

     I often feel it is okay to look backwards to see where I've been. Looking backwards with an attitude of gratitude gives me a benchmark to gauge were I am, where I'm going and where I need to be. Because I am curious by nature, I often explore the paths less traveled. It is amazing what I find on these treks…

Good Morning Michael, Looking back is fine if you focus on the positive elements and don't dwell on negative, and appreciate where you've been and where you are going. Have a great day!

Michael, I've got no problem looking backwards.  Remembering my roots keeps me grounded going forward, and my past includes a lot of those dirt roads :)  Bill

Good morning Michael, that is a beautiful photo, what a great way to start the day. And some equally good sentiment, thank you. Today is a rough day, I have to call the vet, it is time for my beloved best friend to go on his next journey. Your photo gave me a bit of peace this morning, thank you.

Hello Michael,

You can always learn from looking back, when you ignore the past it can bite you in the butt.  Great photo.

 

 

 

Make it a great day !!

Love the picture.  I love the quote too.  Walt Disney was such an amazing man.  I remember growing up and watching him in the beginning of each Sunday Walt Disney movie.

If you don't remember your past, you're doomed to repeat the mistakes you've made along the way....

Love the photo in this post Michael. This one needs to be blown up, framed, and hung somewhere in your home.

Michael, reminds me of that old adage, if we do not study history, we are doomed to repeat it... let alone what we might miss, by not looking back...
