The saying goes “Hindsight is 20/20.” It is only after we experience something that we are able to say why it happened.
Makes sense, right?
Well, what if we could have hindsight vision in the present?
I think it is possible!
When I popped the wheel on my car a few weeks ago, I experienced a touch of this hindsight vision in the present day. It was a new experience for me and a bit overwhelming as I was thrown into the midst of trying to contact my husband, car company, doctor and family and friends but I did not feel sorry for myself and I was not crying “Woe is me.”
Instead, I had a knowing that the tire popped for a reason. I didn’t know the reason nor do I ever need to know it. Knowing that it happened for a reason was enough for me to get off the pity train and step into my power.
One of my truths is that everything happens for a reason. It is only through my hindsight that I have come to this conclusion so don’t throw out the hindsight. It is immensely important to practice hindsight so that then, we can see 20/20 in the present when the time comes.
