The Good Times

When we look back on the past, we tend to remember the good times and forget about the bad times. Wouldn’t it be great if we could bring that kind of positive focus to the present?

And we often don’t appreciate the good things we have, until they are long gone with no hope of return.

What if you could look back from the future on where you are right now? What opportunities would you regret not following. What people would you regret not spending time with? What resources and skills would you regret wasting? What good things would you remember, and what bad things would you have forgotten?

Someday, today will be the good old days. So doesn’t it make sense to make the best of every moment? Focus on the good times, and they will be.

— Ralph Marston
