Keep Your Eyes On The Road

10.365_rearview_mirror

Sometimes in life, it sure can seem like all of the really good stuff is already behind us. Especially when we find ourselves going through tough times.

But here's something to keep in mind ... while it's ok to occasionally take a quick glance in the old rear view mirror, and reminisce about all the beautiful scenes from our past; don't ever forget that the future can actually provide much more vivid imagery ... because only with our tomorrows do we truly have the power to shape reality to fit our dreams.

... and on a lighter note; if you spend too much time admiring the sunset in your mirror, you might just forget about what's ahead, and plow right into a dumpster. (I didn't do that btw ... but it certainly sounds like something that I might do) :-D

  1. Pretty colors in your mirror! I have to say, it's a slightly more interesting because of the writing written on it... I mean, the language of course.

  2. First of all, nice picture... Life is a package of past and present, isn't it? We look behind and bring memories back to life - good and ugly ones - and the next thing we know, we've tapped back into reality, waiting to embrace the future.

    Speaking of memories, I believe we all have some bad memories. Sometimes, such stories of the past make the occasional visit and they interrupt the process when I am trying to fall asleep. How do you deal with it?

    Life... tough and beautiful... what a combo, huh?

  3. Yes, I was thinking about that last night. I suppose if anyone want's to learn a bit of Arabic, the writing probably says something along the lines of "objects in mirror are closer than they appear" :-D

  4. Hi Szh,

    How do I deal with it? Hmm ... I guess sometimes I end up pretty tired the next day, due to lack of sleep. But usually all of our memories (even the bad ones) are there to teach us something ... so eventually we learn.

    That's my take on it anyway.
