Winter Break has been really nice. I went back to working in retail and I know that a lot of you won’t see that as a reason to enjoy my time but it gives me something else to do throughout the day and I can make a litte cash while doing it.
I want to talk about impulses; we all have them and some of us may respond to them more often than others. Impulses can either lead to really good decsions or really bad decsions. I saw a friend late at night when I had a 7 am shift the next day. Long story short I didn’t get to bed until around 3 and woke up at 6. However, instead of beating mysef up over the decsion, I lived and went on with the following day.
My point is that I’ve been learning to live by a “shoulda woulda coulda attitude.” There’s no point in stressing about the past because it’s just that; the past. Events that already happened can’t be changed or altered no matter how hard we try.
We all make choices and should live in the moment of those choices. The best thing we can do would be to adjust and adapt our thinking and behavior for how we carry ourselves in the future. Self evlauation can be gained from making certain choices. Instead of spening time thinking about what could’ve happened, we should learn from the choices we made in the past. Thinking constanlty about what could have happened won’t bring us to the next stage in our development as people; action will.
