Singer and actor Jennifer Hudson was asked what she would change if she could edit her past.
Her reply: I wouldn’t change a thing. Every experience is a lesson learned.
I know, I know … it’s tempting to be sceptical of a one-liner comment in a celebrity interview.
But let’s assume she was being genuinely sincere. What if we could believe that it was good to have no regrets in life, and that we could only become stronger through the experiences that life throws at us, even learning from where we’ve been, what we’ve done, and who we’ve encountered along the way.
Then that wouldn’t feel so throw-away … would it?
