Look forward, not back when assessing your super life

No regrets for the most part, anyway.

There are lots of little things I have regretted over the years.

Like every time I go to Sizzler and don't wear stretchy pants.

Or on occasions those impulse buys on EBay where the description doesn't quite add up to the reality.

Or like last night when I was sneak eating chocolate so I didn't have to share it with my son.

(Come on Mums, I'm sure you know exactly what I mean).

Still, that's not the bit I regret.

The chocolate was awesome … what I had of it.

What I do regret was nearly getting busted eating it, so I put it down somewhere to hide it, got distracted and then couldn't remember where I put it.

So sure, there are plenty of little things I regret.

 

But when it comes to the big things in life one would normally regret, like relationship break-ups, I prefer to look at them as unexpected detours on a life path.

After all, that is how I got where I am today.

I have my son and my Super Man, not to mention a bonus extended family, and life really couldn't be any sweeter.

My life wasn't always like that.

At times sour was more the description I would have used.

But I moved on, looking forwards instead of back, and found such happiness.

That is why I am so glad I learnt you can't let bad past experiences rob you of a wonderful future.

You can't let your fears stop you either.

If you live your life always afraid of the dark you will never experience a wondrous night looking up at the stars.

I'm sure there will still be plenty more regrets to come in my life.

Like when I finally find that chocolate I was sneak eating, knowing I won't be able to eat it anymore.

But I know at least I have so much to look forward to in my life, and so much to look back on with joy.

Do you really want to look back at your life and think only of the things you regret you did or didn't do?

How you live your life is all up to you.
