Two simple word’s and on their own really don’t mean a lot, but put them together and BAM!!!! You just started down the road of regrets…
If Only I did this….
If Only this happened….
If Only they….
See what I am getting at, we can live a life of IF ONLY’s and never grow past it. Yes we should stop and take stock in what we have done in our lives, but we should never IF ONLY it.
Here is an example:
If Only I had gone to college, got my degree and met that someone special in my life.
Yes things would be different, better, maybe or maybe not. We will never know, but one thing we do know, is that our life would be different.
I would not be here, at this moment typing this blog (some may think that’s a good thing), I would not be doing what I am doing now… Yes my life would be different, but maybe not better…
If Only is an impossibility, so why concern yourself with it? We can not change what was, but we can change what will be.
Stop looking back as the problem, and look at it as a life lesson, learn what you can from your past, and toss the rest out.
Start today with the new you, and stop the IF ONLY’s in your life, no-longer look at what could have been, but rather at what will be.
Take sometime to invest in yourself, learn new habits to improve your life, find sometime for your spiritual needs and look to tomorrow for your new you.
