Here’s something that applies to work and personal life. I used to dwell on something, absolutely obsessing (just ask Si) until in the midst of our separation I made a decision. My thoughts weren’t healthy, they weren’t productive, they weren’t constructive. It was time to let things go.
So I did. Eight years on and I am (for the most part) living here + now. If I make a mistake – correct it and move on. Life is about making mistakes and learning, and I guess I forgot that for a while. Mostly, I have the opportunity to correct mistakes, not hold grudges, ask questions, learn. So I do.
