As Long As You Don’t Consider It A Waste

“Every time you fall down or take the wrong path, it isn’t wasted. As long as you don’t consider it a waste.” – Kyoko Honda, Fruits Basket


Whilst I admit “everything happens for a reason” can be cliché and often times untrue – sometimes things are merely coincidence after all – I do believe that we can learn from everything that happens. Make a reason out of it.

I don’t mean that we should find ‘why’ such a thing occurred. Just that we accept it has happened and hopefully find something to take away from it.

When someone makes a mistake, they may say “I shouldn’t have done that. What a waste of time” or even “Why did I do that? Why couldn’t I have done something else?”

It’s impossible to stop ourselves asking the “what if” questions. But we should accept that it happened. You can’t reverse time. Instead, let your feelings be, learn from it and move forward knowing you have new knowledge.

Life doesn’t always go according to plan – but everything that happens shapes us into who we are today and who we will become 🙂
