Learning from spilt milk?

Hindsight is a terrible thing. It leads you to believe that what is so patently obvious to you now should have been patently obvious then. This, of course, is not the truth. What is true, is that now is the best time to sprint forward. Because let’s be serious, hindsight will always add its two cents. What you cannot recover from is middling around until the opportunity is no longer an opportunity but this:

And that is just sad.

However, curiosity got me and I ruminated on what I would tell my younger self.

This is what I came up with:

1. Communicate – People actually like to here your opinion,thoughts, and ideas when they care.

2. Your body will do weird things – Don’t let the mechanics of your body being your body let you stop living your life.

3.You’re Enough – Who you are is enough, you just have to share.

But that really doesn’t matter because the Journey is how I got here. Besides, if I told myself what I know now I’d have a whole host of other things to learn.

Now here’s a doozy. We all know what we would tell our 11-year-old self is patently obvious. What would you tell your last week self?

  2. I would tell my last week self to let go of trying to control other’s lessons that they need to learn and not get so frustrated because things don’t go the way you think they should.

  3. To my last week self- You do not need the acknowledgement of others. They are under no obligation to do so.
