Take chances. Make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.Mary Tyler Moore
I’ve been contemplating a lot. Maybe it’s the state of current events, or maybe it’s my recent birthday, or maybe it’s looking at all of the adorable pictures of my friend’s grandson, or maybe it’s delightful activities of other friends’ teenage kids that’s got me thinking. Likely, it’s all of the above and more.
Reinventing oneself, and writing about it, is quite a cathartic process. When thinking about the future and the changes you’re making, you inevitably look back. What would have happened if I had done this rather than that? If I had gone another route, where might I be? But alas, the past has passed, and there’s no turning back. We can only go forward.
Hindsight is always better than foresight. If I had the chance though, these are some of the life lessons I’d tell my younger self.
