Herb Caen once said, "I tend to live in the past because most of my life is there".

Obviously, Herb Caen is old... very old. We all emerge from the past and forge our future.
Sometimes the past might not be pleasing or beautiful but what we are today is a result of our bitter past, be it bitter.

I have my own past to relive, but I don't live there. We all look back sometimes and think that if we were back there, life would be much easier, we have the certainty of the past and can forgo the uncertainty of the future.

I would like to put into your attention what Lyndon B Johnson once said, "We can draw lessons from the past, but we cannot live in it."

I don't want to relive my past, I want to improve my future and live the present.
