Past Decisions

 

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Something that I have been thinking a lot about is past decisions and how we view them as positive or negative.  Too often we look back at something we decided to not participate in with only disappointment, but I believe it is more proactive to look at what we did accomplish during that time. 

There are always opportunities that we are going to miss.  It is obviously great to maximize the amount of wonderful experiences we can receive, however, if you look at past times and wish you would have done something differently, try to not dwell on what you bypassed, but focus on what you did obtain during that time.  For every occasion that we miss, there is an event that are participating in.  If we make a bad choice that leads us to feel we could have done better with our decision making then that is definitely a learning lesson to grow from.  

Making commitments is simply a difficult part of life.  We have so many unique events that are available to us each and every day, and sometimes it can be hard to tell which one will be optimal for us.  It is difficult to decide what will be the most advantageous before we make a decision, but it can be equally daunting when we evaluate our choices and ask ourselves "did I make the right call?".  The fact of the matter is that we can't change the past, so don't think "I should have done this", but instead "I learned from the experience that I did choose".

Evaluating previous choices and being critical can be extremely useful, but don't overthink, and simply take the best out of what happened!

Have a wonderful week! :)
