Learning From Your Past To Help Build Your Future

Yesterday’s post was a little learn-from-your-past-aug-18down for my liking and my intention was not to have people feel bad about things they’ve done in the past. πŸ‘ž .

So. I’m going to create an addendum πŸ˜‰

Here is what I tell my patients: What’s done is done, the past is what makes us who we are today. As humans we are never perfect – we take the good with the not-so-good and this is what makes us all such colorful and compassionate individuals.

I always focus my discussion on how we can move forward and get the diagnostic work up, treatment plan and outcome that we want – and for my patients – it’s a baby πŸ‘ΆπŸ’š). My advice – especially for those who are struggling with things they wish they did differently:

Don’t worry about it. At all. Use it as an opportunity to improve yourself and learn from it. πŸŽ“

When something happens in my life where something I did or didn’t do negatively impacts one of my patients, my kids, my husband, my friends, or myself. I spend some windshield time (I think best when I’m driving πŸš—) about what happened, why it happened and most importantly – what I can do to make sure it doesn’t happen again. ✍.

And then I move on and leave it where it belongs …in the past. πŸ‘ πŸ‘  .
Because mistakes, events, habits, decisions in life happen – and it’s how it changes you that’s important.
