Poet John Greenleaf Whittier wrote, ‘For all sad words of tongue and pen; the saddest are these, “It might have been.”
How many times we miss chances we should have taken because of what someone said or done to us.
Can I gently remind you that wicked people’s light goes out faster than the honest person who does what’s right.
The saddest words – ‘It might have been’ must be avoided at all cost. Take your power back. It might have been can turn into ‘Here I am and I’m so thankful that I didn’t give up.’
I don’t believe in competing with anyone, just be confident that you are standing on a tile with your name on it. If you are not standing on your tile, get off it. The good, bad, and the ugly are all part of the plan.
Remember that no one is dimming their light for you, be alert and keep your light on high beam. You are always loved right when you are real. Having values allows you to find your path and see others who are going there too.
No more ‘should have, could have, and would have.’ They are all lame excuses. You are never too old to dream again is a great motivator. Believe you can do it and it will be done. The beginning is always the hardest. Trust the process.
There’s nothing wrong in wishing that you didn’t start earlier, the fact is that you are here and you are proud to do it as well as you can.
