At some point in life, most people would have experienced regret, because of wrong actions or decisions. For some the regret may be a fleeting thought, but sadly for others this feeling of regret can last for days, months or even years. But sooner or later, we are faced with the reality that to move forward, we must let go of what we could have been and embrace what we can become.
We need to learn from past mistakes, so looking at these past decisions with a critical eye to avoid repeating the same mistake again is a good thing to do. But reflecting on the mistake to the point of being unable to move forward is not a happy place to be.

The Holy Spirit accompanies us during the process of letting go of what we wished would have been, and He shows us the vastness of what we can be with God.
