Hey Eli, thanks for dropping by!

I think that last part you said is so important: The past is past. There is no point in spending time feeling bad for ourselves over missed opportunities or things would “could have done”. If we keep in mind that the past exists for no other purpose than to teach us a lesson, and if we avoid getting emotionally entangled by it, we can make the best of the present moment by using the past as a giant stepping stone to propel us forward.
