Move forward but look back sometimes too.

RTC 220

I’ve heard it said so many times, don’t look back…you’re not going that way. I used to believe it too. But I’m learning that sometimes you have to look back so you can be reminded of how far you’ve come.

I have always been driven and determined when chasing my dreams. I set a vision and trudge forward, no matter what obstacle is put in my place. I have high expectations for myself and I am always my own worst critic.

I think these qualities are vital to my success but at times they can actually hurt me. My expectations of myself often push me so hard that I lose sight of how far I’ve come. I can only see how far I have still to go and it overwhelms me. 

Sometimes there are obstacles that aren’t easy to overcome. It’s in those moments that the doubt can creep in and I start to think I’ll never make it. Today, I’m not looking forward, I’m looking back and remembering all that I have overcome. I’m hoping it will remind me of my strength to overcome all of the obstacles in my future.
