Sunday Forward and Back

Sunday Forward and Back
It has been said that we live our life looking forward but understand it looking backward.  I believe this is true, and it also explains why it is difficult for teenagers to have perspective.  They don’t have much “backward” to look upon!
For dancers (and artists in other areas too), their lives revolve around the pursuit of their artistic goals, with anything else just dancing (no pun intended) on the periphery.  No wonder everything in their life becomes so overwhelmingly important.  No perspective.  Nothing to look back upon to let them remember that “this too will pass”.
So when life becomes overwhelming, and the problems of the day seem like too much, look back just enough to recall other times, and other events, and how everything worked out somehow. 

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #12 
“We live our life looking forward but understand it looking backward.”
