Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow…

There is a Chinese proverb that I like very much. “Yesterday is History, tomorrow is Mystery, but today is a gift… that’s why it’s called the Present.” True words. But sometimes I feel that in our endeavour to move on we forget how precious the past is…the beautiful moments, the invaluable lessons, the great thoughts that are hidden in the folds of yesteryear’s faded pages. The way to move forward is to learn from what is past…as an individual, as a community, as a nation or as humanity. Think about it…

P.S. This shot was taken at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Cape Town. This sign, barely a feet in size was planted in the flowerbeds. Reaching the future destination using a trail titled ‘Heritage‘. Loved it. Today’s entry from my side for the Daily Prompt :Forward also wordcount under 200 so a short post!
