Dream Forward

What do you dream about? What do you find yourself thinking about through the day? Are you thinking about things that have already occurred, or are you dreaming forward? I had never thought about this until recently, when I read a passage about dreaming forward in a book. 

So many people dream backwards. They use their energy and thoughts to think about “woulda, coulda, shoulda” scenarios. It’s okay to think like that sometimes. It’s beneficial to you to think about what you’ve done and what you could have done differently, and how you will react when similar situations present themselves in the future. But constantly dreaming backwards will get you nowhere.

I want to go places. I want to see the world, and experience it. I want to be in the moment and working towards my future. I choose to dream forward. I believe that when you stop dreaming forward, and focus on dreaming backwards, your life is over. When all that you have is in the past, what’s the point?
