"Looking back, focusing on the past and responding today from our subconscious is the essence of so-called rear view mirror living. It's an approach to life, an aspect of personality, a neurological habit. It's not a syndrome or a sickness or a guilty pleasure. Looking back and understanding our past can bring balance to our wellbeing and decision-making as we go forward. And when we embrace our past, it can bring richness and meaning to our life. And who doesn't want some of that?"
