March Madness – One Liner Wednesday – Drive Quote


“Always focus on the front windshield and not the rearview mirror.”  Colin Powell.

Easy to say but sometimes hard to do, hindsight being 20/20 and all.  I’ve been reflecting a bit about how I lived my life for the last 65 years.  A birthday can make you do that.  The bad news is, I can see some mistakes. 

The good news is, I can see some mistakes.  I can’t take them away but I can try to be more aware of things I do now and try to stop them before they happen, or acknowledge them and ask for patience.

And I can focus on the windshield and not the rearview mirror.  This is what I saw out the windshield last night.  Isn’t the sky gorgeous?

  1. I really like the Twilight Jewels paper that you used. It was a great match to the photos and other embellishments. Weekends In Maine

    Happy Birthday! That sky is phenomenal! Thanks for posting it! You made my day…and you’re right about looking through the windshield and not back in the rear view. It doesn’t help unless you’re backing up in the car! LOL πŸ™‚

  3. What a lovely sky! And a beautiful celebration for your birthday, which I hope you celebrate for more than a single day. Taking stock periodically can be such a helpful thing, and help you recommit to the path you wish to be on.

    It’s always good to take an inventory. Forgive yourself, apologize as needed, and move forward. Everyone makes mistakes and the sun still rises πŸ˜‰

    Regrets are rather useless, but we all learn from our mistakes – at least, most of us do. πŸ™‚ That’s a beautiful windshield view! May you see many more. Happy Birthday! πŸ₯‚

  10. Janet,

    Birthdays do make you reflective. As long as we’re learning from our mistakes then there’s always hope of getting things right. The sky view in your rear view mirror is gorgeous!

    I like that saying. Good advice that I’ll take to heart. Happy Birthday! May your windshield be clean and your wipers brand new, so that your vision is clear while seeing the view. πŸ’
