"Here's the key to being free from the stranglehold

of past failures and mistakes: 

learn the lesson and forget the details."

Your action for today is to reflect on a lesson

you've learned from a past mistake.

One lesson for me to learn from was: dwelling on the past.

It's a mistake to miss your

present by dwelling on your past.

Past mistakes, loses, past relationships and

past  "used to be's" .

Learning to improvise, adapt and overcome 

afforded me surving my past mistakes

and traumas; eventually thriving

 in the "new normal".

Weed your garden, make room for the blooms!

 

I discuss that more here:

Hi Thomas- I love this!!!  I love the quote and the whole message. And this line "weed the garden. Make way for the blooms" is particularly meaningful

Hello Thomas - moving on from the past is necessary but often difficult.  I like the quote you chose for this post.

Hi Thomas... I learned a long time ago to not engage in the "coulda, woulda, shoulda." It serves no purpose in the end. Loved that quote.

Thank you Michael Jacobs I like it too, it has a "brass tacks" approach. Thanks for popping by my post.

Thanks for popping by my post Nina Hollander and so true as you stated, you have to let go of the waste of time that the "coulda, woulda, shoulda." becomes.
