Hindsight in soft focus
As the days pass, and periods in your life resurface, look over them kindly and with open eyes, for THEY are what helped mold and shape you.
Grow to know and better understand the meaning behind the expression “hindsight being 20/20.”
And as distance allows a new clarity, and without losing sight of the opportunities and moments in which you are currently living, let those periods CONTINUE to help mold and shape and grow.
Knowing all the while that as the days turn into weeks, and the weeks turn into years, not unlike eye sight, the details behind hindsight soften and fade. So choose wisely on what you focus.
And as the year 2020 comes to a close, choose wisely what you retain.
