Wasted Time

March 12, 1990

Wasted Time

I’ve wasted some time stewing about things that weren’t worth it. Seemed important at the time, of course. But that was because my focus was too narrow. Should have been able to see around the problem.

Life is too damn short for that sort of nonsense. Do something about it (the problem) if you can.   Otherwise—forget it and get on with things. And I mean forget it! Don’t look back.

“Back” is entirely the wrong direction.

If it was good, great. Enjoy the memory. But don’t try to hang onto it or relive it.

Freedom is letting go . . . with joy! And facing forward

Ahead is where it is.

Regrets are energy misspent and wasted. We need that energy for moving forward onto things ahead.
