“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
“Live and learn” is an easily
disbursed platitude we often express at a moment of surprise when something or someone has hit us blindside, resulting in an outcome we would have never expected.
Yet, all the while it’s being said, we’re likely kicking ourselves for not having seen whatever coming beforehand.
“Why didn’t I think of that?” “I should have figured something like this would happen.” “How could I be so stupid/silly/blind/asleep/[bludgeon of your choice]?”
That’s actually not “live and learn”…but more like “live and judge ourselves for not knowing what we could only know by living.”
I once heard that good judgement comes from wisdom, wisdom comes from experience, experience comes from mistakes, and mistakes come from poor judgement.
Makes good, circle-of-life sense, doesn’t it?
So what sense does it make to carry a load of good-judgement-driven guilt around with us?
Where can you let yourself off the hook today?
Got a life of learning?
“You’ll never see all the awesome things ahead of you if you keep looking at all the bad things behind you. Sometimes you just have to turn around, give a little smile, throw the match and burn that bridge. Live, learn and don’t look back!”
