Rule #33 11/17/15
Don't Waste Time With Regret.
Events happen all the time, we are habitual creatures and tend to label everything that occurs: good, bad, sad, happy etc. Sometimes our emotions can be so powerfully overwhelming we have difficulty moving on. Get the pain and the disappointment out of the way, allow yourself suitable time for mourning but do not make that state of emotions your permanent living residence.
When your ready, start to think about what went wrong, what you did wrong, turn that into a lesson, and move on. Do it better. Make the next one great. Never repeat the same lessons. Accept the part that you have played and forgive yourself. Don’t throw away precious time and energy dwelling on things you can’t fix. You can’t turn back time, neither can you extend time in your life. We only have 24 hours in a day. The number of years in your life is not going to increase. It will only decrease if you waste it on a negative energy by being pessimistic, stressed, depressed, and hard on yourself or others. Move forward. The sooner you can get back up and be optimistic again, the more you can make clear and motivating decisions and be able to enjoy the present moment. ~Will "Story" Rivera
