Groundhog Week- Being Wiser and Learning From Experience

If you could relive the past week, would you? Would you change anything?

The most ironic and saddening phrase human could propel from their mouth is “I could have…., I should have…., it’s a shame I didn’t do it”. In other word, regrets. I have it, you have it, we all have it in our life, thinking how our situation could have been if we do that “one thing”. But recently I read more self help book, I meditate more often, and I am enjoying this world more and more everyday. A thougths comes to my mind that perhaps all things that happened to us is shaping us into human being that is stronger, smarter, and wiser.

The tests we took, the accident we have, the friend we lost and found, the earthquake or volcano, the job we lost, our divorced wife/husband, I mean they are teaching us something, whatever it is. It’s a matter of perspective, really, whether we want to learn from it and improve ourselves or dwell in the depression and spiraling to our tomb we dig.

Think of the events we have and what we could learn from it. If we have a bad time, then it would be wise to learn something from it instead of letting it past unnoticed.
