I believe life is a learning experience and the more we learn, the more we find there is to learn. At 70 years of age I sometimes feel that I know less now than when I was 17. Things seemed so clear when I was 17, because I didn’t know what I didn’t know. Now I know there is so much to know.
We can all say, “If only I knew then what I know now.” Be assured, we all think we could’ve and should’ve done better. We need to forgive ourselves for not knowing then what we know now. We all at some time or other did things we regret.
We need to forgive ourselves for making silly and not so silly mistakes and for being brash and bull headed and for saying thoughtless and hurtful things and for not seizing opportunities.
It serves no purpose to regret the past. We need to think of what we can do now, not what we should’ve done then and start embracing each day as we move forward to our next experience in this life of learning.
We don’t have to be super fit or super strong. We don’t have to be switched on and amaze the world. All we need is to continue to strive to be the best we can be in every way and there are so many ways to do this, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
