“We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.”
Rick Warren

.
I have failed and I have been hurt… perhaps quite a bit. But it is also true that I have loved, and been loved. That I have risked, and received. That I have grown not just older, but wiser every day. And all of this carries a weight of its own – a greater weight than any particular failure or wound.

.
If you think of your whole life as a pie chart. In the end, you will look back on your life and see that the greatest portion of it was spent living, loving, and learning through unanticipated, priceless experiences. The problems, the failures, the sadness… these things are part of the picture, but they are just small slivers that led to the bigger slices of life.

.
What we need to realise is that we all do things we desperately wish we could undo. These feelings of regret just become part of who we are, along with everything else. To spend time trying to change the past, is to waste all of the present and future. Forget the failures of the past and focus on the present opportunities. It is better to have a life full of small failures that you learned from, rather than a lifetime filled with the regrets of never trying.

.
Mistakes are learning opportunities. It takes failure after failure to create success. How can you enjoy life before you know how life works? No one can fully enjoy life until they know why things happen and understand themselves. Do not spend the rest of your life thinking about why you did not do what you can do right now.

.
Look at your past mistakes as learning lessons. Commit to making better future.

.
From good things, we learn to be a thankful person. From bad things, we learn to be a strong person. Remember that everything will not go the way you want it to. It’s a matter of learning that life isn’t handed to you. Stop worrying about what others want. Think about what you want, if you listen too much to what people say about you, you will never be who you really are.’
