Life Is What You Make It: How To Appreciate Your Past Mistakes Rather Than Condemn Them

How many times have you wished for a time machine so you can go back in time and change what was? Or, do you find that you constantly beat yourself up for past decisions?
I have heard friends, family and even myself say, “If only…” but life is about learning! I can now say emphatically that everything is exactly as it should be.
There’s a great master plan for each of our lives, and if we learn to embrace what comes, we would be better able to guide ourselves towards fulfillment, peace of mind and success.
There is no right or wrong, good or bad way in life. Each unique moment in time gives us wisdom and grace to deal with our future experiences.
It’s easy to look back with a heart full of regret and even self-loathing after the moment is gone, but the truly courageous thing to do is to find the silver lining in each situation:
What has this experience taught you? What did you gain? How can you make the next (similar) situation work for you? What are some signs that you can look for, so as to avoid making those decisions or perceived mistakes in the future?
I don’t hold the magic elixir to solve anyone’s problems, but with time, comes wisdom and perspective. If we quiet the internal and external “noise,” and reflect deeply on our past and what is important to us at this present moment, we can chart our destiny and watch the answers manifest in our lives.
It’s so strange that when I practice this, the right situations and people appear in my life so as to guide and take me to the next level of my journey without fail.
The power of intent and faith is truly amazing. It’s also important to never lose heart. Someone wise once told me that when you are at your wit’s end and about to give up is the moment your miracle will come and things will turn around. These are definitely words to live by.
Many of us may desperately want to move on from a situation, whether it is a job, place or relationship, but may find it challenging to do so.
During the time it takes to successfully transition, it’s helpful to try to make the most of the situation. The reason why it’s taking so long is probably because you haven’t learned the lessons yet.
A few years ago, I was at that place; I was at my wit’s end desperately searching my being for a revelation, to progress to the next stage in my life.
I remember blogging about it for many years, and bit by bit, I evolved, until one day, when I least expected, I got my breakthrough.
Sometimes, the answers you are looking for doesn’t come right away, but the key is persistence and being in a constant place of preparedness for the next step.
It was only after several months of that chapter being closed, did I realize why my breakthrough was taking so long. I was being prepared for the next step along my challenging journey.
Indeed, all aspects of your life may never be perfect, but the key to healthy and wholesome living and mastering this thing called life, is learning to appreciate and value the good and bad, and take it all in stride.
Everything happens for a reason, and we ought not to underestimate this sometimes cliché statement.
The Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius, first said,
The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, but make the best of everything they have.
If we bear that in mind, we can then appreciate that we hold the key to happiness and success in our hands. It’s all a matter of perspective and conditioning our minds to fulfill our desired outcomes.

List of youngest birth mothers( A Nigerian is on this list)

A Mexican girl has become one of the world’s youngest mothers after giving birth aged just NINE .

The youngster, named only as Dafne, gave birth to a 6lb baby girl on January 27 at the Zoquipan Hospital, in Mexico's western Jalisco state.

But the young girl is in fact four years older than the youngest mother in medical history, who was just FIVE when she gave birth.

Here is a run down of the 10 youngest mums…

1. Lina Medina, from Ticrapo in Peru, gave birth to a baby boy named Gerardo by caesarean section aged five years and seven months old in May 1939. Her parents thought she had a tumour but when she was taken to hospital, she was found to be seven months pregnant.

Prison Bae: This Model From Miami Might Have The Hottest Mugshot Of The Year (Photo)

There aren’t many things in this world more bittersweet than taking an attractive mugshot.Being able to look attractive at one of life’s lowest moments is a truly admirable feat, and anyone capable of turning heads while facing criminal charges certainly deserves credit for it.Unfortunately, there’s one major problem with having a hot mugshot: The fact that it’s a mugshot in the first place.I’m willing to guess that 22-year-old Angela Coates wasn’t exactly thrilled to be arrested for disorderly conduct back in August.However, something tells me that the model wasn’t too disappointed with the results of the picture she took while being processed.In the Year of the Attractive Mugshot, it’s not easy to set yourself apart, but showing up to jail looking like this is a pretty good strategy when it comes to getting everyone’s attention.
