Think about all the previous versions of you. I am sure there are many. When I look back on the all versions of me I have so much love and compassion for the fact that she didn’t know what she didn’t know. She did the best she could with what life served up but she’s so much better equipped now.
Then think about all the versions of you yet to come. There are many. Get excited about all the things that you will one day look back on, as you become better and better versions of you. Just because you reach a certain age doesn’t mean that you stop growing and learning and shedding. Embrace the process and get excited about what is yet to come.
