Have you ever taken the time to reflect on your past and how you were living your life 2 years ago, 5 years ago, maybe even 10 years ago? Did you ever say to yourself, “I would love to go back in time and tell myself _________ “(fill in the blank). Spend less, save more, study harder, don’t date that guy, take that trip, etc. That’s because you have gone through some life experiences and gained some knowledge… you learned from your mistakes and now you are equipped with more wisdom.
I know that if I could go back, one of the things I would tell myself is to not be so wasteful with my money at the grocery store!! I used to easily blow $125 on groceries a week and then bring it all home and tell my husband that we have nothing to eat! So, we would then go out to eat!! Ouch!! What a waste!
I am so thankful for the wisdom I have learned. Some life lessons were harder to learn then others, but hence all were necessary to make me who I am today. I know that I am not perfect, but I am thankful for the wisdom I have learned thus far. I am thankful for who I am today. And I know that the future is only going to make me wiser! Bring it on…
