Hodgepodge of Advice?

I ran across the below quotation earlier this week (by an unknown author) and liked it immediately.  I also took the time to ponder each individual phrase and attempted to discern how my life reflects each phrase.  My determination: I could buy into some of them more fully, but overall, I think I’m doing okay. 

Without risk (taking chances), life would be pretty boring (I could certainly improve a bit in this department).  Never regret something you’ve done (save regret for those things that you didn’t do but that you wish you’d done).  Things do go wrong (all the time), but time marches on and waits for no one.  There is a much bigger plan out there than what I have envisioned for my life . . . sometimes you just have to “let go” and let it unfold!

“Live life and take chances. 
Believe that everything happens for a reason and don’t regret.
Love to the fullest and you will find true happiness in life. 
Realize that things go wrong and people change, but things do go on.
Sometimes things weren’t meant to be. 
What is supposed to happen will work its way out.”

And here’s another quotation that is very similar . . .
 
“I believe that everything happens for a reason,
people change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they’re right,
you believe lies so that eventually you learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together!”
