In just one moment he made me have regrets. I always said that I would not live a life of regrets. Whatever would happen, whatever came my way, I would not live a life of regret. But, just like that, in one conversation, he made me look back at the mistakes I made and how in one moment I could have changed my future, which is now my present. Wow!
Have you ever looked back at some of your mistakes and wondered "what if?" I've done that. And, somehow, that seems different than looking back and having regrets. I mean, thinking "what if" just seems kind of make believe, kind of whimsical. But, to me, regrets are lingering on the mistakes you made and how it could have changed your present situation and your future.
So, I had to shake that off. I didn't need to linger there. True, my life could have been different, but I'm refusing to focus on the coulda, woulda or shoulda. Yes, I've made some mistakes. Yes, I may not be where I should be or could be, but I'm thankful to God that I'm not where I used to be. My life may have taken a different path to get to where I am today, but, yes, I'm going to stick with the idea of having no regrets. I am just where I need to be, at this moment in time, at this place in time!
