“If I had only known then what I know now.”
Oh how this statement keeps us tied down
To regret and our perceived failures of the past.
We go through life lamenting our choices-
Relationships, finances, and spiritual matters to name a few.
However, we fail to realize that we made our decisions
With the information we had at the time,
As hindsight was not available to us.
Even if we knew that we were making a bad choice,
It was still a lesson learned.
A hard lesson,
But we are wiser nonetheless.
As you go forward on this new day,
Realize that today is all you have
And it should not be wasted on yesterday’s choices.
Learn from it, seek forgiveness if needed,
And learn to forgive yourself
