Today the challenge is about regret. What would you use your “do-over” on? What words would you take back if you could? What actions would you rewind?
Basically, I think regret is a waste of time and emotion. I try to not do things I will have to then look back on and wish I hadn’t done. None the less, I experience some regret.
I regret that bite of chocolate cake, right after I swallow it.
I regret that second glass of wine.
I regret making eye contact with the over-sharing, crazy patron at work.
I regret not spending more time with my grandparents, while I can.
I regret screaming at my daughter for some small infraction because I am tired or frustrated.
I regret saying I am too tired when my husband wants to cuddle.
I regret yelling at the dog as soon as she cocks her head and looks at me with those big eyes.
So, even though I try to avoid it regret seems to find me.
