Things you can't recover in life

A stone after it's thrown

Smart asses would say you can get the stone back, but you can't undone the throwing of the stone.

Things you can't recover in life

A word after it's said

So think before you speak:

T: is it True?

H: is it Helpfull?

I: is it Inspiring?

N: is it needed?

K: is it Kind?

Time after it's gone

You can spend yoru time only once so it's good to think about how you spend it and not waste it. But at the other side this quote is very true: "The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time." - Bertrand Russell

Trust after it's gone

Trust is like an eraser it get smaller after every mistake

An occasion after it's missed

In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take

  • Yes, these are all true.

    There's no taking any of those things back.
    However , making mistakes allow us to make better decisions because if we take from them we will gain knowledge and wisdom.

    Life is all about making mistakes which is why pencils have erasers.

    • Yes surely we can learn from mistakes, that is why I make so many ;-)
