Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
There are no mistakes only creative opportunities. How has your life prepared you for the future? Consider both what you consider successes and the failures. What have you learned from these events? How can you use these to appreciate this present moment and to create the future that you desire? Think of all of areas of your life as preparing you for the next leg of your journey. What have you learned in school, work, and relationships? What skills and abilities have you developed from these experiences? In this moment what has life taught you that will help you, now? Next, what can you create with all that you know now to create your future?
