Your Life Is A Journey So There’s No Such Thing as Wasted Time

By December 1, 2018 April 2nd, 2021 No Comments

How many times have you contemplated your life and the decisions you have made and had regrets? Misgivings about your choice in a mate, regrets about which college you chose to attend, or your choice to not even go to college. How about regrets about a career choice or regrets about where you live? I can tell you I have had moments of regret in the past—laying in bed, unable to sleep, restless regrets I call them. I would lie there and wonder what my life would be like if I had not done this or that thing, had made this or that choice instead of the ones I did make.

I finally realized something: I understood that everything I chose was what I needed to choose at that time. Every person I’ve allowed into my life, every situation I have encountered, every project I thought I squandered time on…they have all shaped me into the person I am and were by no means a waste of my time. Please remember this simple message when you start to doubt your past decisions and the results they produced. You have been through a lot and have managed up until now, so don’t start to have reservations about what you have managed to do with your time. Trust that every moment of time exhausted was time well spent sculpting you into the YOU that you are.

Remember this quote by Asha Tyson:

—Peace, Love, & Baklava Forever,
