Many of us live life with over a hundred regrets. As a child we’re filled with a million dreams. As we grow older, some of these become fulfilled…others are left as dreams, or fantasies.
Then comes a point in our lives where we make bucket lists. Hurrying up to make up for lost time with the “what if” moments.
The list above is not exhaustive. After all, what is said and done is forever gone. There are decisions made or deeds done that cannot be recovered.
We often wish we could have made amends while the person we care for is still alive. But time was not on their side. One day they are with us. Tomorrow, they’re not. How we wish that if we could just have had one more day to spend with them, we’d be willing to trade anything just to have that moment back.
As you’re reading this blog entry today, take 60 seconds and think of how you’d like to live a life without regrets.
Remember – in the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we were too afraid to make.
Stay happy. Life is about moments. Don’t wait for them. Create them.
