Of things you could have done but didn’t?
Of lives you could have changed but wouldn’t?
Of things you could have said but couldn’t?
Of moments you should have treasured but haven’t?
Yes, we all have many of those moments, myself included. But… why waste time crying over the past, something we will never be able to change? We should raise our gaze instead to the future, something we WILL be able to change and make a difference in.
We all run together in this race of life. We will all fall, we will all stumble, that’s true, but to let those things keep us down and away from the final prize? The final victory? Is it really worth it? I certainly don’t think so! After all, what are they in retrospect of eternity?
I say bad things in life happen so that we can learn from them, grow from them and become stronger by them. We learn to shake the dust off ourselves and keep on running this race, no matter what the cost.
What matters in life is not who wins, who is perfect.
It’s who keeps on going and ultimately crosses that finish line.
