We can choose to squander our hours away thinking about the things we could have done but didn’t, or we can begin to focus on the things we can do in the present time.
We can dwell on our previous mistakes, or we can focus on making progress instead. We can think about the opportunities we could have taken, or we can think about the opportunities we have now.
Life has taught me there will always be things we can dwell on, but there’s no point in dwelling or looking back. Each new day will bring new opportunities, opportunities to change our thoughts to bring about new changes. Opportunities to move on with our lives and opportunities to embrace new experiences.
Unfortunately, when we choose to continually look back, we lose the opportunity, seize the day to change what is to what could be.
