Forget Not

In constant accumulation of experiences, our conscience grows every second of every day. In growing experience and increasing accomplishment it is so easy to become less cognizant of the significance of the past and the importance of how it has shaped who you. Not from a deterministic perspective, but one that acknowledges that every experience you have and every decision you make will define who you are. The past is a collective summation of these entities: experiences and decisions. Whether good or bad, we can't deny that these have shaped who we are now. While acknowledging that changing attitude and perspective can help in a course correction from this point forward, there is in no way that we can circumvent negative experiences. Nor would we want to. That is what we are here for, to face challenge. Regardless of what you come to achieve, make it a point to forget not from where you came and the value in that your past played a role in who you are right at this very second. With this, look to your past of trials and trumps and recognize this as your greatest strength. Never forget.

-W.E.
