I was reminded recently of the quote “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. The sentiment is sound. Learn from past experience, both good and bad.
In terms of our own wellbeing however, it’s essential to recognise that we are not defined by the things we did or didn’t do in the past. Becoming consumed with events we have lived through to the point of being unable to see a brighter future ahead can be self defeating.
The idea of changing our lives for the better may be appealing, but often it’s the uncertainty of leaping into the dark that holds us back. Finding the motivation and confidence to change this into a positive leap of faith is what will make the difference.
Maybe beginning with just a small step, what improvement would you choose to introduce into your life right now?
