If you've spent time wondering what your life could've been, know that you're not alone. All throughout our lives we've been presented with opportunities and possibilities and it's natural to reflect on the past and even think about what your life would've been if you took a different route somewhere along the way.
You can't change the past, but you can change how you perceive it. Any "mistakes" can be reframed into life lessons specifically designed for you. You shouldn't dwell on the past. Your current lifestyle is reflection of how you've lived your life up until now.
The good news is that if you want something to change in your life, you can. It isn't too late. You're still alive, breathing, and capable of taking action. You can change your life if you choose to do so.
You can change not just how you think and what you do on a daily basis, but you can change how you live. This opportunity is always available to you every moment of every day.
Your life isn't set in stone. It is dynamic and always moving and always changing, just like the wind. You may not always see where it's going, but you know it's there, it's going somewhere, and is immeasurably powerful.
