Fortunately, I don’t have big regrets, only small ones. I live my life by “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” philosophy. And I believe regrets can’t be undone so make good and move on.
My biggest small regret is spending $7.99 for a four-pack of Starbucks Double Shots at a small general store by my family’s cottage in Clare County. When I mentioned to the store clerk how glad I was that the store carried my favorite drink, which can be hard to find, he said he’d keep them in stock. Now I feel I must put my money where my mouth is and support the store by buying Double Shots whenever I go to the general store.
I don’t mean to trivialize regrets, as there are some who live with them daily. To those I say, forgive yourself, learn from your regrets and move forward. Beauty can be made from ashes.
