“Don’t stumble over something behind you.”
– Seneca, Roman Stoic philosopher
Where do you live? I don’t mean your country, city, or state. Ultimately, we all live in our thoughts, regardless of our physical location.
With this in mind, how often do your thoughts go to past events and experiences that were negative and upsetting? As humans, we have the ability to instantly travel back in time, to revisit and yes, stumble over these same events along with all their limiting feelings.
Imagine that you are born with a factory-installed time machine with three settings: past, present and future. How can you, through greater self-awareness and intentionality, limit your negative journeys backwards to maximize your experiencing of the present? Perhaps you could venture forward from time to time into the delightful possibilities of the future!
