Uh oh, looks like I made a big boo-boo...
Seriously, just because I'm a healer and intuitive doesn't mean I don't make mistakes.
I have to be honest, I've made some silly mistakes over the years and when I look back (as we all do) I shake my head at what looks at times like utter lunacy. Why didn't I do this? Why did I stay with him? How could I have not seen that?!
So many missed opportunities, so much time wasted.
Get over it.
I know how you feel. I know that familiar pang of regret. It aches and haunts you like a snarky little phantom. But it serves one purpose and one purpose alone. To rob you of now.
Now is the only time we ever get, it is the only way we experience anything. So let's band together and banish all thoughts of anything but now. Focus on being present, being grateful, and most of all being mindful without judgment.
Judgment is possibly one of the worst things you can do to yourself because it's almost always done out of context. In theory if you really did truly know better at the time you wouldn't have done it right? Maybe, maybe not. Frankly when we're swept up in our emotions and excitement, hope and possibility we can get mighty good at fooling ourselves about what is really going on.
And that is okay.
I personally choose to live my life from a place of "no regrets". When it comes down to making a decision I may be unsure about I come down to the question ~ What will upset me more: wondering what if or living the worst case scenario? For me the answer is always the former.
But it can take some time to get to that point because our minds, namely our Egos, are clever at painting absolutely horrific outcomes that honestly in most cases will never happen on that consistent a basis.
Make the decision right now to stay in the now. It's okay to reflect on the past a bit and plan for the future - but don't move yourself to those addresses mentally, because as sure as the tides come in they'll have you missing out on some of the most important things of your life.
