Do You Think You Should Look Back?

I'm participating in Mama Kat's (pretty much world famous) Writer's Workshop.

My chosen writing prompt:  Open a blank blog post and "right click paste" in the body of the post...what was pasted? Explain it.

Through Pinterest I have discovered Karen Salmansohn and her site notsalmon.com.  Her tag line "Self help for people who wouldn't be caught dead doing self-help."  Her sites focus is on encouraging us to find happiness, no matter our daily challenges.  I've signed up to receive her newsletter "The Happy, Dammit Daily".  Her newsletters are visual reminders to smile, laugh, just feel better.  The image below was today's newsletter and I wanted to keep it on file:

I highly recommend checking out her site.

Regarding this posters content though, there are times when you do indeed need to look back.  When you're driving for instance.  While backing up you most definitely need to look back or there could be trouble.  And, how about before you leave the house?  Go to your mirror and check your back side.  What if, goodness gracious, your skirt was tucked into your slip?  Or, toilet paper was clinging to your shoes?  Please, oh please, look back.

But c'mon.  I know what she means by "Don't Look Back" and it's a good point to make.  Personally I need to stop being upset at myself for things I've done and move along.  It's over, it's done.  *poof*  Move along.  I can't wait to see what Karen shares with us tomorrow!

  1. "It's over, it's done. *poof* Move along." Great advice!

    There's no sense in "crying over spilled milk!", is there?

    1. I am so happy to find someone who appreciates my "deep" wisdom ;-> Maybe I'll make a bumper sticker!

  2. I think we all have many things we regret or wish we'd done differently. It can eat you up.

  3. You've given me some helpful homework Ann--grab a writing prompt from Mama Kat and check out NotSalmon. Right on, we all have stuff in the rear view that we wish could be different. But as long as we learn the lesson it's struggle well spent.

  4. I am definitely guilty of looking back more often and longer than I should. I have to replay events, analyze, make sense of it, play the "what if" game...I probably need her in my life!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
