Focus on the Future, Not Yesterday

Happy Monday! If you have off today from work like me, I hope you enjoy your day. If you’re working – sorry.

I always try to focus on today and the days ahead, never the negative things that happened in the past. It’s not always easy or sometimes even possible but dwelling on yesterday’s negatives will not improve today or tomorrow’s happenings.

Spending Today Complaing About Yesterday

Complaining doesn’t fix anything, taking action will fix the future. I know we all need to vent sometimes, I know I do. Vent to a close friend or family member, get it out of your system and then move on. Complaining about yesterday will never ever make tomorrow a happier or better day.

Leave the past in the past. Learn from it, take it for what it is, improve on it and move on. Tomorrow be better only if the complaining is left in the past.

Take this Monday, the start to a brand new week, as a new beginning. Focus on the days ahead and good things that can happen. Make this week better than last!

What good things happened to you this past weekend?
Are you trying more to not complain about the past?

    A nice bit of inspiration to start the week! So often we forget to be thankful for what we have and the opportunities that lie before us.

      We do forget to be thankful at times. None of us are perfect but all that matters is that we try our best!

    Well said, Don’t bother about Past and don’t worry about Future but Live the Present!

  6. Moving forward is the best way to get through negative, overwhelming situations. I do pretty well with that, but sometimes have a hard time forgetting and wish I could let more things go.

    Thanks for the positive words, Krystal! It definitely doesn’t help to dwell on the past, especially those not-so-great memories. I do sometimes get swept up in nostalgia, but living in the present and planning for the future is a much more productive route!

    This is great motivation to not dwell on the past as it can’t be changed. I do sometimes think of past mistakes or not so great moments to really appreciate how far I’ve come.

    Great tips. I actually have a hard time of focusing on the future too much, and it can be worrying. Living in the present is the best. 🙂

    I’m glad to have stumbled upon this post because this has been kind of a poopy week for me, so this was a great little push I needed to stop dwelling on the bad. Love your positive attitude!
