The things you did in the past.
The people you have been around.
The way dear ones have treated you.
The level of education you have achieved.
The jobs you’ve had.
The knowledge you have accumulated.
The places you have visited.
The trauma you barely talk about.
The experiences you have shared with others.
The missing praises.
The undeserved rewards.
All we’ve been so far influences our behaviour, thoughts, feelings in the moment. And yet, they are not the moment. It’s a fundamental difference.
Life is not a straight line. It is not even one single line. You are not stuck on repeat, there’s actually plenty of choices on where to go next.
