‘Don’t cry over spilt milk.’
I have heard this saying several times throughout my life, often in reference to something negative however, I thought about this saying and feel extremely positive!
I am sure there are plenty of us that can relate a certain situation to the phrase ‘don’t cry over spilt milk’ – we are probably thinking of that situation right now!
However, this phrase should be used as an opportunity to think positive and move on from any situation that we have regrets over.
Whether it be a missed opportunity, letting someone or something go, regrets within a relationship, not going for that McDonalds when you were hungry (i joke!)- the situations are endless.
The fact of the matter is, we cannot change the past or anything that has been done. All we can do is accept what it is (not what it could have been) and decide to use the situation as a learning curve for personal development and progression.
All too often, people spend an exceptional amount of time dwelling on what could have been and not thinking about what WILL be and the opportunities for the future.
For example, if you have had a recent break-up and you regret ending the relationship/wish things would have turned out different, please do not sit there sad and miserable. Live your life for yourself, not for others, and whatever will be will certainly be.
Also, if you didn’t get a job that you had tried really hard for – there is an opportunity to build on what went wrong and use this as a development and something to build on in order to help you achieve that big job!
With setbacks and missed opportunities we learn, grow and develop and should always use these opportunities to make us a better person, and build better situations for ourselves.
Everyone knows that unexpected or unplanned things happen in life, sometimes on a daily basis, but with a positive attitude life is easier and brighter.
We must learn that not everything or anyone is owed to us and missed opportunities/ setbacks are often blessings in disguise!
Here’s hoping this post has helped you feel slightly positive about anything that may be disturbing your good vibes!
