Move On but Never Forget

Remember the cliche about forgetting so you can move on?  I realized that we shouldn't really forget our mistakes because if we do, we might end up doing it again.  Remembering our failures and shortcomings, I believe, would help us move on and be better.  Doing so will keep us on our toes.  Sometimes we need a constant reminder on why we are trying to do better, why we are trying to make ourselves better.  So when you find yourself remembering a negative past, maybe it's your mind's way of saying "Hey, remember when you did this?".  Pause for a while and reflect on where you are now.  Maybe in trying to forget the bad, you also forgot why you're trying to do good.
