Sometimes we spend so much time and energy thinking about where we want to go that we don’t notice where we happen to be.
―Dan Gutman, From Texas with Love
When I first moved from Oregon to Texas, all I did was mourn for the area that I left behind. I couldn’t see the beauty that was all around me, simply because I was too busy wishing I was somewhere else.
Sometimes it’s hard to leave the past behind. Past experiences, past loves, past places all seem to follow us and haunt us. You don’t have to forget about the past, but don’t let it cripple you. Be sure to see each day with new eyes. Savor each one, because you never know when you might be experiencing your last one.
