Looking in the Rear View Mirror

All too often in life, we go from day to day in a non-focused, taking it for granted mode. The routine of each day lulls us into a habitual, repeated pattern of living and loving.

We lose focus of the moments and pass through them without conscious notice. It’s like when you are driving; you arrive at your destination, but often do not consciously remember the drive. Patterns of habit create these seemingly out of body experiences.

With all of this against us, it is important to remember to “stop and smell the roses.” Halt activity for a moment, look in the rear view mirror and see what and who you have been missing, then back up, re-focus and proceed slowly with conscious effort on what and who are important in your life.

  1. Thank you, Butch. How often we neglect to look in our ‘rear view mirror.’ Thank your for the reminder. So important to do before we round the bend never to see the images again.
