Sounds like a quote from a cheesy, pop psychology, self help guru. And you'd be right! Well sort of.
See, I'm working on a book called "Create the Life You Want." Here on this blog I will be sharing some excerpts and stories from my life that I believe will encourage and empower you to live your best life possible. It's a journey I hope you will enjoy sharing with me as I share various things I've learned in life and am STILL learning through mistakes, hurts, and disappointments along the way.
Some of us spend so much time looking back, dwelling on all the things we did wrong, the opportunities we missed, the dreams we think we lost, and wishing life could be different. Believing the lies that it’s too late for us, that it’s too hard, and that we are just doomed to live a plan B, C, or D life.
I admit it’s been a constant struggle for me for most of my life. I’ve wasted more years, ruined more relationships, and lost more time to depression, anger, and discouragement because of this than I have spent actually enjoying my life and the people in it.
But no more!
I’ve had an epiphany. I can spend my life regretting and being miserable, stuck in the past. Or I can let God take those mistakes and use them for good to help other people.
So that’s what this book is. It is a compilation of various quotes I found that I only discovered when I was in my most lost places, desperately seeking encouragement and inspiration to get me out of my own ruts. The passages that accompany them are my stories that were inspired by these quotes. I hope they encourage you and inspire you the way they have me.
You don’t have to spend your life living in regret. You can create the life you want RIGHT NOW.
