Our life journeys bring us on various paths. Some of these paths have twists and turns, some have summits, peaks and valleys, and others bring us on the straight and narrow. Now all of these paths help shape us into the people we are today. The good experiences bring about feelings of joy, happiness and abundance in the aspects of our views on life. The bad experiences can bring about self-doubt, uncertainty and some fears to which all have experienced at some point in our lives.
Now I would like to think of these so called "bad experiences" as tools to provide us with life lessons. Tools that when looked at from a different perspective can bring about enlightenment, truths, and certainly hope. Hope that we learn from these "mistakes". Hope to give us a point of reference so that we can better ourselves.
Everyday, we have choices on which paths we choose within our journey. Often as human beings we are so hard on ourselves when we supposedly "didn't make the right choices". I say, "Pish! Posh!" We made these choices for a reason. We can always choose to come back, to turn left or right or just keep on trudging along merrily in our desperation, fears and anxieties. but to look back on our life filled with regrets or thoughts of negativity over these choices is a clear choice to impede your own growth.
The growth you needed in order to become the person you've shaped yourself into. We grow everyday on our paths of discovery. You can choose to embrace the changes needed to learn and grow. You have the choice! You make the decision! It is ours to gracefully accept the wonders of our chosen paths on our life journeys.
