Have you ever had a thought or feeling of a future event? Let’s say a scenario. Maybe it wasn’t very clear, and possibly very distant. Now, what about a thought of a future event that you wanted to happen. Have you ever thought about what a party would look like in your future? The people there, the food served, the atmosphere and the sounds and smells all come to mind when I think of this. A classy party where the kids are running around, hiding under tables and playing. Sometimes I wonder if I’d rather be the child or if I’d rather be the adult in this one. Everyone would be dressed up to the nines.
“Everyone would be dressed up to the nines.”
I see them knocking over a glass of wine and no one gets upset, maybe they laugh. I see myself chatting with my future wife and our guests. Maybe later we all play a board game. This is one example of the moments of joyful times I think of.
These moments I have rarely experienced, but when the do occur, I believe in my heart that they were meant to be very special for myself to experience so that when they do happen again I shall be able to cherish each moment. I am a man with a few regrets. I now choose to live life without regrets, not because I accept the decision to not take action, but I accept to take the opportunity that arises.
“I now choose to live life without regrets, not because I accept the decision to not take action, but I accept to take the opportunity that arises.”
I’m one of few people who do what they say they will do. I grew up thinking people were against me and I now know that the only person really against me is myself. I stop myself from reaching for the stars. I stop myself from reaching my goals and I am to blame when something didn’t go the way I wanted it to. One day I’ll have that party, and those kids running around, knocking over wine glasses. Throughout my life people have come and gone. Even the ones I thought were staying. The only person who never leaves is myself. The only one who is always there is myself but now is a time when I don’t have to be alone. Now is a time to be more than by myself.
You should never regret doing what you did when you didn’t want to. In other words, you should never allow an opportunity to pass, even when you were not eager to go along with it. The worst thing that could happen is that you find out what you didn’t like about it.
