Happy Monday my friends,

This is our last month of 2017 for Q-Tips and wanted today’s letter to reflect on the past and looking toward the future.
STUDYING HISTORY
“We can chart our future clearly and wisely only when we know the path which has led to the present.” (Adalai E. Stevenson)
We didn’t just arrive at this point in our lives; we have a history. What brought us to this place? What things did we do along the way that turned out to be mistakes, and what things turned out to be wise? Before we makes plans for where we want to go next, it’s good to look back at the journey we’ve already taken. We don’t have to repeat the same mistakes. Instead, we can use the last ideas we’ve had in the past to map our way into the future.
NOTE TO SELF:
I’ll use my past as a guide to what I will do next. (Linda Picone)
The way to do is to be. (Lao Tzu)
We are shaped by our thoughts. We become what we think. (Buddha)
Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions. (Olive Wendell Holmes, Jr)
We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained. (Marie Curie)
Never regret anything that has happened in your life. It cannot be changed, undone or forgotten. So keep it as a lesson learned and move on. (Lessons Learned in Life.com)
Life doesn’t allow for us to go back and fix what we have done wrong in the past, but it does allow for us to live each day better than our last. (Power of Positivity)
Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
