Every so often I stumble across something that really speaks to mindfulness and will go out of my way to share it with others.  

Here's just such a thing: 

 "To start the next chapter of your life... you must quit re-reading the last ones."

"To start the next chapter of your life... you must quit re-reading the last ones."

I saw it on Facebook, after having a conversation with my sister-in-law about just this very topic.  The reason I made sure to grab a copy of it is not just because of the message, but because like all this stuff, it applies just as much to me.

I have my own things I get stuck-in-the-past about.  One such thing is my getting back in shape.  I had lost a lot of weight previously.  Became a really fit runner.  Ran races.  All great stuff.  

Lately, I've been struggling to get back there again, to be in the same place I was.

I can't.

I can be in a new place.  It doesn't matter what came before.  What matters is what's happening now.

Sometimes I forget that.  Then I remember.  Grateful for that.
