If I Knew Then…

On the way to Mass, I listened to the song “Dear Younger Me,” which asks: If you could go back, knowing what you know now, what would you tell your younger self? As I listened, I thought about the bits of wisdom I might give my younger, less-wise self. Most of us have thought about how we might do things differently – if only we could do it all over again.

But the song illustrates that even though we have regrets from our past, all our experiences have shaped who we are. You have been becoming the person you are today. We can’t change the consequences of our choices. But we can change the consequences of our present and future selves. One of my mottos are: “No matter what your past has been, you have a spotless future. This applies to our personal and professional lives.

I’ve taken some quiet time to reflect on what would I tell my younger self. I also reflect on what I need to do to be the person that I’m destined to be.

Join me in this reflective meditation and we will be surprised to see the work that still needs to be accomplished. Change your habits change your life!
