You know the saddest words you can say are “shoulda, woulda, coulda”.
All those things from our past we replay over and over again in our head. We imagine what we could have done differently, or wish we didn’t do at all. We grow older and we learn new things and have new experiences that change us and change our outlook or viewpoint. With this “new knowledge”, and from the perspective of knowing the outcome or results of our actions, we take a second, third and fourth look at what we would do if we had it to do over again.
The challenge is … it was those exact experiences and results that gave us the insight and “new knowledge” with which we are now examining the world. If you think about it, if we didn’t get to experience all those things, we might not have grown into the same people that we are today.
So, how about living life with no regrets? Getting rid of those negative shoulda, woulda coulda? Though we may be older and wiser, we’re still not exempted from making mistakes. In living life with no regrets, be aware that it is not only fine to make mistakes, it is absolute that you will and I encourage you to do so. If you are not making mistakes chances are you are doing nothing at all.
So from this point forward, live with these motto’s:
*Be grateful for all the things you have now rather than complaining for what you lack. Realize that others wish for that which you now have.
*Follow your own journey. Don’t mind what others want you to follow. It’s your life, not theirs.
*Find fun and happiness with as many people as you can. Every person has a story. By listening to them, you may find insights and lessons in living.
*Have fun, enjoy and laugh as if there’s no tomorrow. A happy energy draws a lot of people!
*Take more risks, and be adventurous. Because you only get to live once!
*Don’t compare yourself to others because others will always have something you don’t and vice versa.
To live life with no regrets, enjoy the journey and don’t be afraid to take on the challenge. Don’t breath new life into the past… it has already had it’s chance. Focus on the Now and the Future.
