I’ve often felt and heard people say “I wish I hadn’t done that in the past” or “I wish I could change my past”.
I’ve also heard people exclaim “I wish I could go back and start all over again”
Me? I don’t wish to go back!
Surprising, right? Yet, it is the truth!
I have come too far to go back.
Like a plane passing the point-of-no-return, so called because it would take more fuel to return than go forward!
I have come too far. I have made mistakes but they have been so incorporated into me as learning points.
I have fallen & got up, fallen & been raised up, fallen & climbed back up…
Every step & every detail has been ironed out, fused together and assimilated into me as character, experience, expertise etc, etc etc. My past has made me who I am today .
I sure wish I hadn’t made some mistakes and errors, but I have benefitted from them.
In overcoming my faults & defaults, I’ve become better than I hoped to be, thanks to the Hand of the Master Craftsman.
Maybe you won’t believe this: I am content to be who I am.
Like wine, choice & fine, I have distilled, aged & refined.
I am happy to go on, to build my future with the back up of my past.
Regrets yes, but won’t trade my present for my past or for changing it!
How about you?
Love to hear from you!
