It can be so easy to look back and second guess the past.  All of the ‘should haves’ and ‘would haves’ you see littering the ground of the trail left behind are like mini land mines.  One step into this dangerous territory and suddenly you see more and more things to ultimately beat yourself up about.  Which is totally counter productive and leaves you in a space of regret and longing instead of dwelling in the space of hope and creation. The fact of the matter is you did the best you could at the time with what you knew then. Would we all go back and change things from the past?  I bet so.  However until a time machine is developed that is not possible.  Instead of beating yourself up over it, learn from it.  Take the lesson out of the past and project it into the future.  The next time you encounter the same situation you will be more likely to respond in a way that is in alignment with what you learned and what you know now.  Then leave the past in the past, which I know full well is easier said than done. We can all learn from the past, just refuse to live there and live your life NOW instead.

    • Thank you Julie, looking back on my own life I see little land mines everywhere. I assume I cannot be the only one who does. Thank you very much for your comment and liking this post! Robin
