Review of Week 7 – Go BIG With Changing The Words “If Only” To “Next Time”

Love of Fate

Love The Hand You Are Dealt

This week, when I had thoughts like: “If Only I hadn’t broken my laptop charger, to “Next time I will not chop the chord up inside the motion furniture when I sit down, I realized that I can’t change what has happened, and it is a waste of my energy to regret it.

I was reminded of the ancient Roman philosophy, and the Latin words: “Amor fati”, meaning “love of fate”.

Instead of regretting the past, and wasting time worrying about things I can’t change, I can embrace them as a necessary part of my journey. All my experiences, good and bad, are lessons that have have shaped me and helped me arrive at the present. If I can love everything, good and bad, and see the value in what it has taught me, I can stop looking back, and be better today than I was yesterday.
