Should’a, Could’a, Didn’t. If you’re like a lot of people, you probably tend to get stuck in the past. It’s a normal occurrence to think of past decisions made and how you could have made them differently. If only I had.. blah. Heres the thing, its over. Done'so! You can’t change the past, the best anyone can do is learn from it. Move on and take those lessons with you until they no longer serve you.
Some say that luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. It comes and goes in many disguises. You got passed over for that promotion you desperately wanted? You lost the number of that cute guy from the bar last night? Life happens. Sometimes early disappointments turn into later victories! Don’t dwell on what was or could have been. Instead continue to ready yourself to pounce on the next opportunity that comes your way.
This is a big one. Its a bit nuanced. See heres the thing. If someone breaks your trust theres a chance that someday that bond can be rebuilt. The chances are not in your favor though because your body, mind, and heart will always carry the shadow of that betrayal. All pretense aside, things will never be the same again. Try to do by others as you would like done onto you! These 3 things are precious. Life is finite so don’t take them for granted. This lesson is curtesy of words spoken to me by a dear friend. It helped to put things into perspective when my world could not have been any more wrecked. Hope it helps you as well!
