We measure what we love by what we’ve lost. Never give up trying.Frank Derbin
I look back at my life and know that there some specific events and decisions that made it what it is: a truly wonderful life, so happy that sometimes I fear something bad is going to happen and take it away.
The tricky part is that those decisions and events .. I didn’t know they’d be so impactful when they were happening. People say “don’t look back”, but I think it’s important to:
The things you’ve done, the ones you’ve failed at and the ones you’ve accomplished, will give you the strength to look at what lies ahead and say: “It’s just one more thing, who knows what will come, look at what I’ve done already, I can do this other thing”.D.V.
Don’t dwell on past mistakes. With each failure, we learn and grow both personally and professionally. You can’t change the past, but you can learn and be better for the future.JH
In October 2015, a faculty colleague of mine literally dropped dead outside my office door. While my relationship with her had been strained in the past, we were just beginning to turn over a new leaf & develop a positive relationship.
That day and every day after, this quote stays in my heart:
Life is short… Be swift to love, make haste to be kind.A.T.
Be willing to change the stories you made about past experiences. You can change the way you feel by changing the way you think.
What are you telling yourself that makes you feel bad? What could you think instead to make yourself feel better?
Relationships heal. We need one another to heal.
You can’t go it alone.Anonymous
