You know, the 20/20-ness of hindsight also shows me that mistakes are going to be made by us all throughout our lives. It's a part of being human. It's part of growing. The human factor is one of the most missed factors of life, by those who prefer to judge and criticize others. One who is humble enough to accept the human factor and spend more time looking into a mirror, rather than at others, will find that there is not much time to waste on the human factor in others. When I look at all the flaws within my own vessel, I see a LOT of work that still needs doing, in my own mind, heart, and life. Focusing in on the flaws of others means that I am neglecting something of myself that needs more immediate attention.
The happiness in life that God would like for us to seek and to have is LASTING happiness, and NOT the millions of moments of instant gratification that came and went with our last breath. By taking a thing that was meant for a second and trying to live a life by it, only leads to misery, heartache, resentment, disappointment, and all sorts of negative stuff that God NEVER meant for our hearts to endure. The majority of the trials we face in life are trials we, ourselves, opened our doors to. Spend some time thinking about it, and I'm sure you'll see.
