A Beautiful Blur, But Some Have Regrets…

The older we get, the faster time seems to fly by. We become busy with work, friends, family and children. Before we know it, our entire lives have changed in what felt like a blink of an eye. A beautiful blur, but some have regrets. Why didn’t I stay in college? Why didn’t I study abroad? Wasn’t I going to travel the world? Wasn’t I going to have college funds for the kids?

We all have regrets, but fretting over them is not getting you anywhere. So, before punishing yourself, take a breath.  The questions you want to be asking yourself should include: Where do I go from here? How do I move forward? What do I want now? How am I going to get it?

Just the other day I caught myself wondering how I got to where I am. Although very content, I cannot help but nag at myself for my financial situations or my regrets with schooling. And while it’s great to be concerned with those things, we need to look forward. Stop worrying about what you did or what got you here because memory is for learning & being thankful for all of the good, not for torturing yourself.

Learn from your past, be thankful for it, and move on. Start doing things you’ve always wanted to do and remind yourself that it doesn’t matter how old you are. Look toward the future and start fighting before time slips away again.

🙂 You never know what you’ll find.
