It seems to me that every so often we reencounter someone we knew years ago. It is always interesting to see where life has taken each other since the last time we were in touch. It’s also very telling to me how with some folks, you fall right back into your friendship like it has been untouched by the intervening years. While with others you can’t seem to connect because you both have changed so much over time. Either way, it is quite an interesting look into yourself if you are willing to take it.
“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”
I know a lot has changed for me recently, but looking back to who I was a score of years ago I can barely recognize myself. That person probably would never have guessed where we ended up in life!! And I don’t regret any of it because it has formed the life I have now and it is a pretty good one!
