Do you ever spin the memory wheel and look back at your achievements? It is all too common to look back with regret over what you haven't achieved.
My motto has always been:
“Regret the things you do do and not the things you don’t”
When I tell stories of my past I am very proud of all the places I have been, things I have seen, people I have met and experiences I’ve had. All those memories make me appreciate who I am and what I have now.
Three things I have learnt over the years:
- Make the most of a bad situation, every cloud has a silver lining and there are lessons to be learnt from every mishap.
- Slow down, be present and enjoy the moment. Take it all in because children grow up quickly, loved ones are lost too early and in a blink of an eye life can be flipped upside down.
- Be yourself at all times. If you have to pretend to be something you are not, then you are not hanging with the right people. Those who truly love you will accept you no matter what.
