Don’t Be Rooted In The Past

Don’t be rooted in the past, but be grounded in the past.

I like the word, nostalgia. In fact, I first learned this word while browsing through school French vocabularies. The word, nostalgia, is beautiful, just like the meaning that it is intended to convey. We tend to hold onto anything that’s beautiful. Hence why many of us get stuck in our sweet memory and spend considerate amount of time, trying to recreate what has already come to pass.

This moment can never be lived again. Why, then, do we try to hold on to what’s gone and not enjoy this moment to its fullest? The past should be celebrated. That being said, Rooted firmly in the past can only give way to the rise of frustration.
