"Life is simply time given to man to learn how to live. Mistakes are always part of learning. The real dignity of life consists in cultivating a fine attitude towards our own mistakes and those of others. It is the fine tolerance of a fine soul. Man becomes great, not through never making mistakes, but by profiting by those he does make; by being satisfied with a single rendition of a mistake, not encoring it into a continuous performance; by getting from it the honey of new, regenerating inspiration with no irritating sting of morbid regret; by building better to-day because of his poor yesterday; and by rising with renewed strength, finer purpose and freshened courage every time he falls." - William Jordan
I don't consider myself an old man but I've accumulated a long list of regrets in my life. At one point, the list was so long that I made a conscious decision to change my outlook on life. I pledged to try all the things that I had secretly been longing to do and to say all the things that I had been biting my tongue about. Wanted to live life with a boyish exuberance. That was the inspiration for the name Skoolboi Krush. Nothing to me is a strong and as sure of itself as a young man's love. Unfortunately, I'm not a young man and sometimes my mind is filled with doubts. Letting those doubts determine the decisions that I make has caused me to make more than one mistake. As the author states, a man grows from learning from his mistakes and not making them into a pattern. Today I pledge to renew my inspiration to live life to the fullest and enjoy the moments. I got things to do. No time for regrets or people who wallow in them.
