It happened, so own it

I related my meandering career path to a mentor I’ve just started working with yesterday. I say ‘career path’, but it doesn’t feel it’s had enough direction to call it a path.

Their advice – own it.

Whatever we’ve been through has given us some benefit or insight, if we looked closely enough and with curiosity. We might prefer to live without it, but there’s no reminding time. So, the best we can do is acknowledge the lessons we’ve learned and apply them from here on in. That way lies growth.

Own it.
