Women’s Wisdom – Put the past in its place

If you could give your younger self some advice, what would it be? I asked ladies at our recent gathering, and on the Women in Serenity™ Facebook page this very question.

The point wasn’t to highlight regrets, but to focus on what we have gained from our experiences so far, to drive us forward with positive intention, and to inspire a younger generation. This is what women said:

“It’s only temporary”

“Don’t be fooled!”

“Cherish each moment”

Powerful. Honest. Inspiring.

Shortly after this, I saw this article where women over 40 were asked a similar thing. One of the answers stood out:

“Leave after the first lie”.

We’ve all stayed longer than we should. We’ve all invested time and energy we won’t get back. But the point is this: we’re still here.

Everything you’ve been dealt, you’ve faced.

No moments were wasted.

You’re doing just fine.

Shape your life going forward knowing what you know now, and only look back when there’s something to learn.
