#YourTurnChallenge – #Day5 – Past glory is past

Day 5 of the challenge.

[For the purpose of reposting, I have deliberately not looked into the grammar mistakes. Because excessive editting is my way of stalling the final product, which defeats the purpose of this challenge. Specifically for this post, I paraphrased the title for this reposting.]

I’m all for nostalgia, and like some things that would be called vintage today. And of course, vintage fashion.
But past glory, can remain in the past for me.
We get used to quote our credentials, our past achievements. When I was …… I used manage ….. And I also used to do ……
Past glory, is just that. It’s past. It keeps us in the past. It keeps us at a benchmark, so the only place I’ll ever go is in reference to that benchmark.
What if the path we are meant to walk next has no earlier reference, no benchmark? Then what?
Past glory can remain in the past. I continue to be greatful to the opportunities, learnings, exposures and achievements. And I continue to look forward.
