Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.
Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.
We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.
It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.
You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Anytime we drag

When we refuse to grieve,
it slows us down and
robs us from finding
The past does not have to be your prison. You have a voice in your destiny. You have a say in your life. You have a choice in the path you take.
FJORD CHARTS THE MAJOR INNOVATIONS OF THE PAST, AND PREDICTS A FUTURE OF TOTALLY INTUITIVE “MICRO GESTURES AND EXPRESSIONS” THAT WILL CONTROL OUR DEVICES.
To see the future, first we must understand the past. Humans have been interfacing with machines for thousands of years. We seem to be intrinsically built to desire this communion with the made world. This blending of the mechanical and biological has often been described as a “natural” evolutionary process by such great thinkers as Marshall McLuhan in the ’50s and more recently Kevin Kelly in his seminal book What Technology Wants. So by looking at the long timeline of computer design we can see waves of change and future ripples.
Don’t beat yourself up over past mistakes. Hold your head high and dry your tears. A new day is here.
When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future
The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the present. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.
