I regret nothing in my life. Even if my past was full of hurts, I still look back and smile because what I am today is because of my past. It made me stronger and stronger. ~ Author Unknown Are regrets present in your life? I really hope not, but if they are, it’s really important for you to have a talk with your own person and make sure that you get to the point where you understand how important it is to change your attitude towards life and let go of regrets. Nothing good can ever come from holding on and resentment, for they are only holding you stuck in the past, now allowing you to enjoy your present life. We can’t change the history but we can definitely change how we perceive the present moment and influence our future, we can definitely change our attitudes, because just like Charles R. Swindoll said it,“attitude is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home… We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.” So what is it that you want from life, what is it that you want from yourself? Why are you here on this planet? No, I don’t think it’s just so you can go to school, college, get a job, get married, have some kids, retire and then spend the last years of your life regretting the past, thinking about the things you could’ve done but because of the many excuses you used, you didn’t. There has to be more to life than this, don’t you think? You want to build a happy and successful life and let go of regrets? Well, start working on improving your attitudes toward yourself and towards life and every single day work on building happy, precious moments and in the end, when you will look back at your life you will realize that the sum of those moments helped you build a successful life. It’s that simple and Lao Tzu said it best, A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. This is how you start building on your happiness, this is how you learn to let go of regrets, and this is how you learn to focus on what you can change – the present moment, and what you can influence – the future!
