IT IS IMPORTANT TO REGULARLY REVIEW OUR OWN, HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT, LIFE DECISIONS AND THEIR RESULTS. THEN, WE CAN DECIDE TO MAKING CHANGES, OR WE CAN RECOMMIT TO ACCEPTING OUR DECISIONS AND HOW THESE DECISIONS HAVE LED US TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY.

It is quite unsettling to review entrenched assumptions, decades-old decisions, accepted results, reasonable consequences and still want to make changes which probably will change the course of our lives.

Even if we are open to such introspection, others who may become affected by our choices, may not understand, and may not be accepting.

The most comforting aspect of this life review is that a majority of us will be quite satisfied with our historical decisions. Moreover, we can better understand how chance and the decisions of others affected us. We may even gain a sense of peace and acceptance regarding our current lives.
