If you could turn back the clock, go back five years, 10 years, would you?
It’s tempting, isn’t it?
When you go back, though, you have to go to back to who you once were. I would imagine that, given the choice, you’d rather be who you are today than who you were yesterday or last year or 10 years ago.
It’s understandable that you would wish for a different today. Just don’t wish for a different you. What you’ve been through yesterday and last year and during these past few years has been rough. But these experiences smooth out your sharp edges. Even on your most difficult day, you shine because you now know what’s truly important. Your today will give back to you because you do life’s most significant work.
Look back and treasure your memories. Look forward with a strong belief that your life has your back.
