#71: You Can't Undo the Past but You Can Do This Instead
"Addicts cannot change the abuse suffered in childhood. They cannot undo the choices they have made or hurt they have caused. But they can change the future—through the power they have in the present moment." — Ryan Holiday, The Daily Stoic
If we learn to gently accept the things that are out of our hands and courageously work on those within our control, we will find so much peace.
Forgive your failures in the past and change your future for the better by doing the best you can—right here, right now.
