“You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.”– Dan Millmann
Are you trying to change your past? Are you trying to change what you cannot change? Change is scary. Change is what we need to grow. Don’t try to change what you cannot change. Your past is gone. Don’t worry about it. The only thing you can do with your past is to learn from it. Yes, learn from it.
You can’t recover your past, but you can discover your future. But you can’t discover your future if you keep living in the past. You can’t discover your future if you continue to waste your time trying to change what you cannot change. The best thing to do for yourself is to focus on what is happening in the moment. Don’t live in the past. Live in the present. According to Agatha Christie, “One doesn’t recognize the really important moments in one’s life until it’s too late.” Live your life in the moment, but don’t ignore the future. Now matters. The future matters, too.
“You can’t recover your past, but you can discover your future.”
