One of the things that I most love about life is that we are not defined by our circumstances. Rather, we are defined by the choices that we make in response to our circumstances, even if those choices are based upon choices that we have made in the past. It is never too late in life to take ownership of your involvement of your decision making in life and to stop feeling defined by your circumstances.
Never forget that what matters most in life is what happens on the inside of us in our internal development, and not what happens circumstantially to us on the outside. The power of taking ownership over your choices in life is transformational; let your actions now and in the future define your happiness and not the mistakes in your past. We must forgive ourselves for the circumstances and choices that we aren’t proud of and instead spend our energy focusing on creating congruency and happiness in the moment we are living today.
