My Calendar likes to give little words of advice, most of it is cryptic double talk the rest is just obvious e.g "You can see far just my looking".
But today I quite liked the phrase it offered up "Life would be dull without Human error"
I know I'm guilty of sitting back and thinking "oh I really wish I hadn't done X three years ago" and thinking about all those mistakes you make through the course of existence. I am certain everyone has had that realisation that they shouldn't have done what they just did. The important thing is not to beat yourself up about it, or spend to long thinking. Otherwise it could drive you mad. I thinking you should acknowledge mistakes and do your best to learn from them.
The world keeps spinning and living in the past will mean you end up missing the present.
There is an old Chinese story about a child and a Monk, the Child turns to the Monk and says
"Oh Master you are so wise, one day I want to be as wise as you"
and the Monk looks mournful and replies "I may seem wise but for every time I am right, there was once a time I was wrong and there is still so much I do not know".
