Happy Saturday, Friends!
I don’t know how your week has been, but this past week ranks right up there on my list of “the most stupid things I’ve done in a week.” I won’t go into details, but let’s just say I’m glad to say goodbye to the past 7 days and move forward into a new day and new month.
I’ve decided that I can either live in a state of regret, or I can choose to learn from my mistakes, talk about them, and hope that others glean from the mistakes I’ve made and be better for it as well.
Truth be told, it hasn’t just been this past week where the mistakes have piled up. Nope, not at all. Looking back to my early teens, twenties, thirties, and forties, life hasn’t always been filled with pleasant memories for me.
However, mistakes, regrets, and would-have, should-have, and could-haves will be a part of our life until we take our last breath, right? Mic drop: You and I aren’t perfect – and we never will be.
If this is the case (and it is), then you and I can learn a lot by looking into the rear view mirror every now and then. Getting stuck and staying stuck won’t get us anywhere. It’s time to turn our mistakes into lessons and move on.
Why? Because you and I have a lot of living to do yet!
Without further ado, here are a few blogs that I want to share with you…
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.
