I love this.
In addition, here's a thought:
My mother used to tell me all the time, whenever I was facing a difficult decision, "You can only make the best choice possible, based on what you know RIGHT NOW. Later, you may know more. Then you may be tempted to judge yourself harshly for the decision you made today. But decide right now to forgive yourself in advance for what you did not know — and could not know — today. So make your decision, and move on."
(Clearly, you can see where I learned the notion of ONWARD from.)
