What would have been? I have mentioned numerous times that we need not worry about things we cannot change and furthermore we can’t change the way people feel about us because that is something totally up to that person and not us.
I look back on situations and think What if I had done this differently would things be better now? And what if I had taken a different road would these people still be in my life? See this type of thinking is something we all do at times and in my opinion there is nothing wrong with this type of thinking as long as you don’t let it consume you.
What ifs are nothing more than that, just a what if, there is nothing we can do about decisions we made long ago and if we had made different decisions then where would we be right now, had we made a different choice back then would we be without someone we hold dear today? And if we had a chance to do it all over again how many of us would make exactly the same decision we made back then?
My point here is that we all seem to judge ourselves so to say and wish we had done it different when in reality we actually did it the way we were supposed to back then because we are right where we are supposed to be right now, whether we realize it or not.
Enjoy what you have and look forward to what is coming in your future, we don’t always know what is coming and that is just a part of living life, so slow down and live the life you have right now because as good as it is, it’s only going to be better each day you are living it.
