With the New Year upon us, we often reflect on the previous year’s mistakes, accomplishments, joys and sorrows. Many of us look to what we could have changed or done differently. Although these thoughts have crossed my mind, I found clarity during my snow shoveling days and nights.
Have no regrets, but instead learn and move on.
Some things I will not regret:
Not blogging for weeks on end because I’ve been entirely too busy with life.
Eating those extra holiday goodies while making 1800 cookies for our friends, family and veterans.
Staying up until 3 am with friends or family members, just to enjoy their company.
Being passionate about everything – loving – working – believing.
Taking time to be grateful for what many overlook. Struggles and sadness teach us a lot about ourselves.
Although this list is short, I’ve learn so much more. With 2013 fresh at our doorsteps, take the time to love the unlovable, forgive the unforgivable and breathe in the life you’re experiencing. Let go of regrets from years past. Let nothing prevent you from hugging the people you love or telling them what exists in your heart. You will be happier, healthier, and have… no regrets.
