Learn From The Past But Don't Repeat The Mistakes

Its simple but true, you can't change the past, as much as many of us may wish we could. Whats done is done, we have no control, we can just look back, sometimes with fondness, sometimes with smiles, and sometimes with sadness.  We can, in hindsight, understand a little more, our choices, our actions, our reactions to situation as well as the actions, reactions and input of those who were involved in your past.  We can sit and reflect, apportion blame, either to ones self or to others, we can drown in guilt, sorrow, pain, or we can fly in memories of joy and happiness.  Regardless of the situations in the past, our reasons for reviewing and reflecting, whether it be memories of joy or sorrow, the most important aspect we have from the past is to LEARN, GROW and DEVELOP and that's what I try to do every day, to become the best person I can be; and whilst I may fall down, come up short, or not reach the barr, at least I have the ability to review, reflect, pick myself up and try again - after all, that's all any of us can do, to try and be the best person we can be in this journey called life and by using the lessons we have learned from the past to change our futures and that's what I strive to do each and every day.
