In Spanish there’s a saying: “Don’t go back, not even to gain momentum”. The past is called that for a reason, because it passed. We can learn from it, all while making sure not to go back. I recall a series where the protagonist would say “Forward always, backwards never”. Let’s focus on the wonderful things The Creator has authored into our future. 

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead… (Philippians 3:13 NLT)
