Building with orange car

It's easy to focus on the future, to be drawn in by new technologies and flashy gadgets. When busy-ness takes over and we just try to get through the day, there just seems no time to look backwards or consider what has happened before - in our lives let alone in other's lives.

What are the risks of not looking back though, of not appreciating the past? Of only thinking the future matters? What can we gain from an appreciation of the past?

We could miss the great opportunity to take on board what has been gained from previous efforts, from mistakes made and lessons learned. It stops us being arrogant and thinking that our own current world experience is what really counts. It helps us to appreciate that some of life's experiences are the same regardless of the period of time in which a person lives. Like caring and thinking about each other. We may even start to truly appreciate the efforts previous generations have gone to when they achieved great things without the benefits of technology or modern equipment. Just how did they build those elaborate buildings without modern day machinery and equipment?

We may even find that it is only through a real appreciation of the past that we can truly understand ourselves yet alone begin to look to the future.
