With Hindsight

People often use the word “Hindsight” in a negative way; they either judge themselves for not having done something differently in the past, or regret that they didn’t know any better. But actually we can only ever operate from our current level of awareness.

We Cannot Possibly Know

We cannot “know” now the things that we will know in the future; we could not have known “then” the things we know now. So instead of seeing hindsight in a rueful way, see it as a symbol of all that you have learnt, the new awareness about yourself as time passes.

Your hindsight is there to remind you to smile at how wise you have become and how much wiser you will become in future times.

I’d love to hear your comments on this – do you look back with regret or celebrate your ongoing wisdom??

As always, from my heart-space to yours
