Day 05 → Your favorite quote

Every moment wasted looking back keeps us from moving forward. Life is too short, time is too precious, and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been.
– Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hillary said this in her concession speech on June 7, 2008, days after President Obama won the Democratic nomination. I’m pretty sure I cried my way through the entire speech. This particular piece stood out to me most of all. In the moment, of course, it was because of what it meant right then. But it holds true for everything, every day. Hillary tells us that even though we didn’t get what we wanted – there is too much to lose and now is too precious to live in then. For someone who often dwells in the past, it’s a good thing to remember.
