At breakfast the other day, hindsight came up. In fact, the statement was said that, “Hindsight is 20/20.” It can be thought of as being beautiful. Yeah-hindsight is beautiful. Hindsight affords us the opportunity to see things crystal-clearly, no longer being in the situation.
Merriam-Webster defines hindsight as,”the knowledge and understanding that you have about an event only after it has happened.” Wow: only after it has happened. Why can’t things be obvious while I am going through it (that question pains me to even type)? who knows: maybe things are obvious and I just choose to see what I want to.
I’ve learned so many lessons in hindsight. Why couldn’t I have had these epiphanies on the front end? Isn’t there value in foresight? God only knows why I didn’t see what I was supposed to see until after it happened.
One of my greatest challenges these days is to shift my focus from hindsight to current awareness. I’m drawing a blank as to how I will go about this paradigm shift. I just know that I have to be present in each moment, learning all that I can along the way. The great part about it all is that I can improve upon this daily! It doesn’t have to happen overnight. What a relief!
Until next time,
Love & Peace.
