Don’t long for “the good old days.” This is not wise.
At some point in our lives we have all been guilty of living in the past. There are instances in which we lost time or opportunities simply because our hearts and our minds were settled on something of the past. We were so concerned and moved by our past that we failed to live in the present and plan for the future. Do not let the good old yesterdays take away the good old today because you do not know to exist in the now.
Although reminiscing here and there does not cause harm to anyone, resting on the past and dwelling on things that are from the past may cause stagnation. Do not lose out on what you have at this moment or the time you have available to you simply because you’re so bound by your past. Yesterday might have been great but do not rob Today of it’s great potential simply by being stuck in yesterday’s happening. If you are not careful the danger of nostalgia will slow down your present and your future. Live today, in this moment and in everything you do, do so by God. Be proactive and be focused on what is coming your way, not that which has already passed.
