Y'know, I had a different opening but then I thought about it... and thought about it some more... then decided to go with this paragraph. Do you like it?
Do you ever find yourself tangled up in the web of afterthoughts? You know, the better comeback lines, the what ifs, the regrets, the second guesses.
Unless they offer you true insight or give you something that you can actually DO, afterthoughts are pretty useless. They belong in the past along with the original moment. They have no bearing on NOW.
So, really, give it up. Be grateful that you did the best you could, when you could, with what you had.
Then turn your attention to forethoughts for the future.
They're a far better use of your mind now and will taste a whole lot sweeter when tomorrow comes.
Keep the light on!
