I Don't Look Back
Stuff happens. Good stuff and bad stuff. To everyone. You aren't special (a phrase my husband hates hearing me say). It's true though. We all have had crappy parents, bad jobs, terrible partners, no good rotten days, liars, cheats, health hurdles, etc. You don't escape these things in life. They are just part of the art of living. The thing that I do differently, that makes me happier than you, is that I just accept the things that have happened, try to make changes and amends when applicable and then I move on. No grudges, no plots of revenge, or scheming to make it better. No pity parties or violins. Life can suck. I admit that. It is also awesome and beautiful in ways that astound me every single day when I am fully focused on the present. Get there and you will be happier too.
