At almost a quarter of a century old (I know, old right?), I look back on my past and wonder how I got to where I am right now. Why did I make some of the choices I made? Where would I be if I had done something different? Why didn’t I take the time to learn from my past along the way instead of waiting until now? How did I get so depressed and hopeless? What led me to be so unhappy?
In the past I’ve done a lot of things to be proud of, but I have also done some things that I cannot believe I did. People tell you not to regret your past because those experiences are what made you into who you are today. I would like to say that I don’t regret anything, but that would be a lie. There are a handful of choices that could have had disastrous endings, but I’m grateful that they didn’t.
But enough about the past. I’m in a place now where I can now sit back and learn from my mistakes. I have the opportunity to forgive, forget, and move on to a brighter and better future. I now have an intentional path with direction and guidance and couldn’t be more excited.
Here’s to becoming happy!
