This quote showed up in my email this morning – see below for my thoughts…
I’ve always proposed to live my life without regret. However, if honest, it’s clear I’ve made plenty of mistakes. Many have said to me, “but those mistakes are a part of who you are today.”
My reply (with a sigh), “exactly.”
My life has not “unfolded just right.” I have been broken, battered, and damaged. But the last pat of this quote I heartily agree with. It’s the getting on with it that determines success.
The regrets are there. “Woulda, coulda, shoulda.” But, I have addressed them. Forgiven myself and others, and learned from that history.
