"In life we do things. Some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are. And in the end they shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them we wouldn't be the person we are. So just live. Make mistakes. Have wonderful memories. But never ever second guess who you are. Where you have been. And most importantly where it is you're going."
This is one of my favorite quotes that I think about this time every year. As I move into the new year, I try to remember that what has happened last year is in the past. I remind myself to let it go. What has happened, has happened and it has shaped who I am today.
Ever so importantly it reminds me to live into the future I want because my imagination and my hard work are my only limits. I must also remind myself to take things as they come. Life throws curves balls at me and that even with the best laid plans, I might have to take a detour. Nevertheless, I am living.
Remember: Life Happens!
