New Years - A Chance To Start Over
Forrest wishes Lt. Dan a Happy New Year. But Lt. Dan is somewhere else. He is deep in thought. Probably thinking about the past and what might have been.
**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** Auld Lang Syne. Ring out the old, ring in the new. Hi I'm Steve Weber and sometimes I feel like I've been hanging on too tightly to the past. This video series of 94 of the movie's life lessons and best scenes is all about transitioning from the past, to the present, and to the future for me. Here is scene #34 as we celebrate the movie's 25th anniversary. Auld Lang Syne is especially known in English-speaking countries to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve. It's roots are from a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788. As we watch Lt. Dan in this clip, we see he's not in the present moment. He's in deep thought. Mostly likely thinking about days gone by ... or old times. Lt Dan was probably thinking about what might have been. What should have been. About days gone by ... about Auld Lang Syne. It takes Gumption to look deep into our past so that we can create a better future. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Use the past to learn from ... but then jump back into the present moment and create a better future. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
