Living in the past

One thing I’ve found is that a lot of people dwell in their past.  Know that each day is a new day and a new chance to do, be and see better!  Don’t focus on yesterday unless you want a mindset of woulda, shoulda, and coulda. Constantly practicing this thought pattern robs you of can, did, and done!  Enjoy some quotes on change and the past!
"Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past are certain to miss the future." John F. Kennedy
“One problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us.”  ~Michael Cibenko
 “I have memories - but only a fool stores his past in the future.”  ~David Gerrold
“We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think yesterday was better than today.  I don't think it was, and I would advise you not to wait ten years before admitting today was great.  If you're hung up on nostalgia, pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time.”  ~Art Buchwald
 “If you are still talking about what you did yesterday, you haven't done much today.” ~Author Unknown
“Living the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causing you to bump into people not going your way.”  ~Edna Ferber
“Opportunities fly by while we sit regretting the chances we have lost, and the happiness that comes to us we heed not, because of the happiness that is gone.”  ~Jerome K. Jerome, The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, 1889
