Lessons Learned

"Looking forward because there's nothing I can do to change the past. Time to accept it, move forward and make amends. Life is to short to be worrying about what might of been, because the what ifs of life don't guarantee happiness.."

-Savanna Marie 


No matter how much i would like to go back in time and change some of the decisions i have made and i have came along way when it comes to acceptance. 

I have learned that everything happens for a reason. The decisions that you have made in the past do not define the person you are today. What you decide to do with the mistake is what truly defines you. 

You have two types of decisions to choose between when you realize that you have done something wrong. You can either A. feel sorry for yourself and do nothing to change it, you can let that one mistake ruin your day, you can use it as an excuse when you make other mistakes, you can flip the script and try to make this mistake someone else's fault. Or, B. you can learn from it, you can take the lesson that you learned from the situation and figure out a solution to make sure that it doesn't happen again. 


I don't believe that the decisions you have made in life define you as a person. Everyone makes mistakes and uses bad judgment at times in there life time.

I believe that what you choose to learn and take from the experience is what truly defines you as a person.
