Found a aim conversation that I printed out back in April of 2002. Now looking back almost 9 years later the conversation had some very sound advice.
At the time I was a sophomore in high school and very unaware of what really mattered. (Hey, I was 16 — we are all like that —very typical) The conversation was with an older friend that I went to school with and he was trying to cheer me up because a certain boy I liked was, (just like me) a typical high school boy.
After reassuring me that I had a lot of many wonderful qualities, he left me with this last piece of advice,
"Don’t waste you time focusing on your regrets."
After a crazy 2010, I think this phrase will become a theme for me in 2011. My life has changed a lot since I had last celebrated a new year — and that was all because I trusted myself and took risks. I finally allowed myself to make decisions thinking of what I wanted and how I wanted to challenge myself.
Also, I must have know that this advice would come in handy again someday since it is the only aim conversation that I have printed out stuck in this old composition notebook.
I hope you all have a great year ahead and make the most of it.
