I have regrets

I have a million regrets.  That may be a bit of an exaggeration but, give or take, it is true.  It is true that I have made mistakes and if given a do-over I'd probably do 99% of those things differently.  I have learned a great deal from those mistakes.  In my mind it seems like no regrets means no learning; it means I would not do anything differently.  No regrets sounds like an excuse not to feel bad, learn, and do better.  I think regrets are critical to character building.  But, that's just my lil ole pea brain thinkin' way too hard.  What is so wrong with having regrets?

  1. I don't think I know anyone who doesn't have any, whether they would want to go back and do things differently or not is another thing. I have some I would love to change and some I think were good but tough lessons.

  2. Hi Jeanette,
    I hear people say "I have no regrets" and it is was prompted that post. I think that has become a popular saying. I think regret means something valuable and to not regret is maybe a mistake...I dunno.
    lol

  3. I think we all have had regrets at some point. The ones I do have and wish I could have done differently I learn from and put my big girl panties on and move on! Onward and upward!

    Thank you so much for coming by my Blog for a visit! I am enjoying looking at your artwork!

    Cheers!

  4. Depends what they are I suppose but would not be so rude to ask! Life is tough and we should do our best. May I suggest you sing a jolly song, "rain drops keep falling on my head", "I'm singing in the rain" are good to lighten the spirit! Happy Christmas from Dorset England!

  5. Hi Lulu,
    FIRST, the Hard Candy concealer REALLY WORKS! I may have a whole new life. THANK YOU!

    Second, thank you for visiting me back :)!

    Hi Robert,
    No big secret regrets. I will try and think of some to post, though, lol. They are probably just the typical regrets. Thanks for visiting! :)

    I think what started me on that was that I heard, "I have NO regrets!", yet again, from some celebrity on the TV. So, I think to myself, "So that means you are never sorry? I bet not." But, what in the hell do I know?

    I will probably regret not taking more risks the most. Gonna try and fix that. (grin)

  6. On my Grandmother's 92nd Birthday I asked her what she'd do differently if she had it to do all over again. Her answer - "A whole lot less housework."

    I've not been able to avoid regret completely though I have used the "I don't want to regret NOT doing this" excuse to enjoy myself thanks to them.

    I enjoyed my visit to your Blog.
