Everyone's approach to life varies from person to person. Most of life's choices are learned from past experience's and mistake's. It doesn't even have to be our own mistakes, we can choose to learn from people's mistakes as well. I learned a lot of what not to do in a marriage from my parents. I try my best to not make those same mistakes that lead them down the road to hardship and divorce. Still try as I might I still find myself doing those things, the difference is learning, yet again, from them. In these mistakes I strive to value hard work, resourcefulness, kindness, character, and responsibility both in myself and in others. Though we stumble we may choose to learn to walk or fall.
As I pondered on the many lessons, which life has taught me, I also thought of how I approached various situations and events. It is entireley our veiwpoint about how we see things. If we go into something with a negative attitude we recieve negative results and vis versa.
In conclusion, my view point, I once read:
Learn from the past.
Live for the moment.
Hope for the future.
Happiness is a journey not a destination
