How in the hell did I waste so much time? Who is to blame for this time wasted? Is it the conditioning and non-teachings of my “parents”? The questions are being asked because regret would run wild in my mind on a regular basis. I am a work in progress with my growth but I still have some things that I am working on mentally. I have regretted a ton of decisions that I made in my twenties and now I am in overdrive to reconcile these decisions. I love my children but having them at that time with the two women that I had them with was not great decision making on my part. The money wasted and time spent working for a company with a low ceiling for growth was a bad decision as well.
Guess what, none of that shit matters now. Regret will not control me or my thoughts currently and especially in the future. I lived with that regret for many years and now I seem to have it under control, but it still will find its way back from time to time. That regret in mind will cause bad decisions in your current life and will affect your future. The key understanding for me is that I can’t go back and change none of the things that I should have made better decisions on. My current mind state is to never say the first question I asked to start this post. I didn’t know who the hell I was or what direction I was heading in at the time and I had no great adult guidance which was partly my fault. I am listening now more than ever and that person I listen to mainly is SELF. My experiences have given me knowledge and understanding to trust myself more than ever. I still have to talk to people and I am willing to receive great advice from people with great experiences as well, but I make the decisions for my life totally.
Now look back and say, “I fucked up” and now move on and fuck the world up. Be the controller of your destiny. Realize your TIME IS VALUABLE and can’t be replaced. Use it wisely and always work on your brand (yourself). Health is wealth and will help extend your time here. Knowledge is power and travel is necessary. Talk to people and discover a new world. Regret is the thing of the past and now it’s time to create a new world. LOVE to ALL.
