I Wouldn’t Change Anything… Lying or Stupid!

We all have Regrets...
We all have Regrets…

We all see those interviews. The Movie star, author, politician, athlete or other hero.

“If you could change anything, what would it be…”

The interviewer asks “If you could change anything, what would it be…” and the answer is “Nothing, I am happy with everything I have done in my life…

Wrong Answer!

We all have regrets, we have all made mistakes. When I wake up at 3 AM and cannot sleep, those old sins and mistakes come back and haunt me.

We all have regrets, we have all made mistakes.

 

Do I have regrets about my life? YES, hundreds of moments and events I would like to re-live or forget.

Anyone who does not admit to these moments is a cretin or a liar. In most cases, I suspect, a liar.

The Slow Home Podcast had an interview with Rachel Macy Stafford that I enjoyed. She said.

“don’t waste time re-living old mistakes…”

The single most important (for me) comment I took away was “don’t waste time re-living old mistakes…”

For me, this is a chronic problem, but her explanation has convinced me that when I wake up at 3 am, don’t focus on old mistakes. Think about the current issues, and the future.

Thanks Brooke and Rachel.

PS –  No mistakes… Well, not sure about politicians… (grin)
