Everything in my life has brought me to where I am now. Every decision, every step, every chance I took, and even those I didn’t. That’s not to say it’s fate, I fully believe that we write our own stories.
I used to spend so much time beating myself up for bad decisions. I let regret take over and wallowed in it. I think we all have parts of our past we look back on and wince at, it’s only normal to make mistakes. But it’s important to acknowledge them, and even be grateful for them! Treat them as lessons leant and make use of them. If you can see the positive in them, they go from having power over you, to giving you power.
