How many times have you told yourself this? If I had known this or known that, I know things would be better now. However, life does not work that way. We only know what we know in the now. Remember the saying “Hindsight is 20/20?” That is a saying because it is true. This is because the past is in the past. We are not there in the moment. We can go back and visit the past. We can even choose to live in the past. However, when we were in the past we only knew what we knew then. Since then, life has moved on. Life is not static. Life is dynamic. And because it is dynamic that means things change. Leaves on the trees change. The weather changes. Our perspective changes. We change because life changes. We get older. We learn some things don’t work for us any more. Or maybe they never worked for us but now we can see and understand that. Or we learn some things that work for us. Then we have to learn to keep doing those things that work for us. And sometimes we forget that. But that is part of life. That is part of being human. To live, grow, learn, forget, repeat, stay stuck, and to continue living life one way or another. It is up to each and every one of us to decide how to use the information that has been learned along the way. So what will you do with the things you have learned along your way. If you knew then what you know now……….How would things be different? How would you apply the things you have learned from then to now? Just some things to ponder.
Namaste, my friends.
