How Many Times have you heard in Hindsight I Should have………..
Hindsight: the ability to understand an event or situation only after it has happened: With (the benefit/wisdom of) hindsight, I should have taken the job. Inhindsight, it would have been better to wait.
Hindsight is a funny thing! We make choices based on facts, needs and wants at the time a situation arises and if we truly knew the outcome of any event would we do make the same decision?
This week I have been refelcting back on my life, something I believe that we need to do! I am not talking about wallowing I’m talking about looking back and seeing the lessons that I have learnt from past mistakes, relationships and taking time to see if I have truly learnt from my own hindsight!
If something repeatable happens a to us are we listening to our own needs and learning? Yesterday I met a lovely friend and mentor Tracey Mason, and we discussed that we need to change our behaviour and our beliefs about situations to truly learn, if we don’t the same thing will keep happening!
How many times do you hear (or even said):
Why does this keep happening to me?
If only I had?
I should have?
Yes we can be unfortunate! Breaking the cycle is essential for us to live the life we desire, if we don’t we will continually get hurt by our repeated mistakes.
Change is essential and looking at hindsight helps us see what is needed.
If a situation happens again we need to remember and act respond differently to our previous behaviour!
I often think of reasons, seasons and lifetimes, which is a lovely poem. It explains that people come into are life for a reason, a period of time or are lifetime friends; I believe that this fits in to hindsight! If we don’t change ourselves, protect ourselves and ignore our life lessons we will never be able to move forward and have the life that we spend many a day, dreaming about
Change happens we cannot stop it, it came be difficult, even uncomfortable but changing are opinions, perspective and asking for help if needed, we can learn from our past to create our future.
