Wow. Doesn’t this quote give you an instant uplift? We can feel regretful about the things we have done or not done, things we should have done or done differently, and so on. We can beat ourselves up and forever feel sorry or regretful, and live with the pain, guilt, shame. Or we can focus on the way forward.

We can’t change what has happened in the past – we simply can’t. We can only move forward and be better each day. Take our learnings from the past – even be grateful for them, as they have shown us what we no longer want in our lives. So we can be more of how and who we want to be.

“We can only move forward and make the whole beautiful.” I’m just visualising a line in a graph that indicates an average of our life so far. And I see that line going up and up while living life: making the whole more beautiful.
