Rewind 10, 20, 30 years. Where were you living? Were you in school? In a different career? What did your circle of friends look like?

Maybe thinking back, you experience a huge wave of nostalgia. Maybe a little remorse. Your feelings may cause some discomfort, and you quickly try to flip the memory switch off. I know I’ve been there.

But there is a lot to gain from reflection. Try to think of instances in your life that, with time, now illustrate each of these points:

  • You’ve become wiser. Mistakes happened, but each new brain wrinkle is contributing to your progress. And you’ll never stop learning.
  • You’ve become stronger. There were moments of pain that you’ve overcome. You’ve identified your strengths and are hopefully leaning into them. Weaknesses be damned.
  • You’ve perfected the process of elimination. You have tasted many flavors. You’ve tried things and realized they weren’t a fit. You’ve narrowed down what you want out of friendships, careers, romantic relationships, and hobbies.

Are there any instances that do not fit into the 3 aforementioned categories? What’s the reason? How can you get them to fit?

If you have outstanding regrets or other items in your control, it’s time to resolve and make them fit. Use what you’ve learned in the past and continuing growing. Your memory bank will thank you for it.
