But yet so far? I suppose everyone has felt that sensation before. And there are two ways of looking at. Either an epic failure or the belief that it wasn’t suppose to work out that way. I know which one I prefer to focus on, the one that makes me feel unstoppable and great. So obviously most people like to use the “didn’t that go well, and why hasn’t it gone the way I want it to go, and my all time favourite: “wasn’t that a waste of time”
When something goes wrong, just holler out “plot twist” And move on.
Nothing is a waste of time, even if it taught you that you should raise your standards. It taught you something. I read something the other day about not having regrets, maybe label them as “wonderings”. I am pretty sure nobody goes out of their way to make spectacular mistakes. So whatever you did at the time, is what you wanted to do and or the best choice to take at that time with the knowledge you had. You only know if it works out because of that special term “hindsight”. And that’s the gift in itself, if we all knew how things would turn out….we would all be perfect all the time. The thing is, we already are.
You can’t progress in reverse.
