The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have. We all have something stored in our memory banks of the past that we wish we could have done differently, or something we wish we didn’t do.
As we get older we learn and grow, but that doesn’t mean we have to regret what we did before we learned how to do things differently. If we didn’t go through those experiences, we might not have grown into the strong and knowledgeable people we are today. Do you live each day so that you don’t regret a thing at night? This is something that not many of us are able to do, and often times this is because we are fearful of taking risks.
Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can’t build on it; it’s only good for wallowing in. Instead of living a life controlled by fear, take action and live your life with no regrets. Start with yourself, if you find yourself continually upset over the same things, and constantly dissatisfied with the work you put in each day, make an effort to change it. Instead of wasting your downtime, put this time into creating the future you would like to see for yourself eventually.
Live in the present tense, facing the duty at hand without regret for the past or worry over the future. You must also be willing to be adventurous. Stop doing the same things you have been doing or you will only see the same disappointing results. Make your health and wellness a top priority and always take care of yourself so you’re ready to take care of others. Stand up for yourself and others and don’t let anyone or anything hold you back. Be yourself and love who you are now.
The list of ideas to help turn your life around could go on for days, but only you can figure out exactly what you need to do to be able to realize true happiness in your life. So figure these things out, and take action. Don’t waste any more time living a life that you will only regret over time. Follow your own path, not one that others want you to follow. At the end of the day let their be no regrets, only a desire to do more tomorrow than you did today. Do something every day that makes you feel proud of yourself—commit random acts of kindness whenever you get the chance. And always keep on moving forward.
