This was pulled from a blog post entitled, Life depends on Change, and Renewal
This is a topic that I find myself thinking about more and more…how we can change and evolve, regardless of where we are in our lives.
A little over ten years ago, I made some poor decisions. I would like to think that although I still live with some of the consequences, I learned and evolved….changed and renewed.
A buddy of mine, who was aware of that “journey to destruction” sent me a very long letter. Here is one paragraph. This quote hangs on the wall in my office and in my home.
“If there is one thing I am learning as I age, it is that all of our experiences, good and bad, contribute in ways we never could have imagined to the value we ultimately bring to the world. So I have become more accepting of things that happen because I believe they will improve me in the long run”.
