Lot's wife was told not to look back.... Not good advice because we learn from our mistakes but if you look back to punish yourself, you have a problem.

I'm in accord with this notion. Paul Lynde was popular on the game show Hollywood Squares* a few decades ago and had this question posed to him once: "What did Lot's wife change into when she looked back at the evil cities of Sodom and Gomorrah?"

Lynde's response: "A leather jumpsuit."

The lesson from that: when you look back, you have to learn to make the most of your situation.
