“I challenge myself to stop comparing what I learn to the past.” Scott Belsky
Perhaps the past is cliche
Maybe to reflect on yesteryear is to stymie growth
Just look at those who hang onto history too long for our good.
A run is a run is a run.
Step after step after step.
Nothing more, nothing less.
A drive for meaning in the context of what was
Makes little sense of being right now
Which has little to do with what will be.
All that makes perfect sense
When I remember that I’m not a statue
For I can continue moving
Without the circus of the ridiculousness
Of being stuck in the same old, same old
Because I understand how important this moment is.
