Last week, I saw a tweet that contained a link to something that I was involved in a few years ago. Against my better judgement- and repeatedly telling myself it was a bad idea- I clicked on the link. I read. I wouldn't say I was happy. I clicked on another link- again, after telling myself it was a bad idea. I was in the spiral of clicking links and becoming more and more unhappy. My clicking and reading did eventually lead to a discover that brought me a little joy. Overall, I was still unhappy with what I was discovering.
As I was preparing to write this post, I found this quote a friend had sent me a couple of weeks ago:
This was a something I obviously needed to be reminded of. I'm not going back. Not only did I move on years ago, I am in a MUCH better place. A happier, healthier, more fulfilling, much appreciated place.
I should quit looking back and focus on the path I am on, the direction- forward- that I am going. Things are really great and I can see some of things that are on the horizon. Those upcoming opportunities are going to be really positive for me.
I am going to continue to only look in the direction I'm going.
