I hope you’re well. 🌼
I recently found a quote in a book that made me stop and think. The author mentioned someone named Søren Kierkegaard, a famous thinker. He once said:
“We do not choose the times in which we live. We only choose how we live in those times.” 🕰
It made me think about the big decisions we make in life, like moving to a new country. Some of us move for exciting reasons, like a new job or to be with someone we love ❤️. Others had to move because of challenging situations, like wars or disasters.
Making such a significant change can mean leaving behind friends, family, and everything familiar 🏡. And, sometimes, we might think about things we wish we’d done differently or moments we regret. But the thing is, we can’t change the past, no matter how much we wish we could.
So, if there are things you wish were different in your past, remember this: Every day gives us a chance to make better choices. Instead of focusing on past mistakes, think about what you can do right now, today, to build a better tomorrow 🌅.
I hope this thought helps you like it helped me. Remember, you’re in charge of your story from here on out. 📖
Take care and always look forward! 💪
