I know I am not the world’s greatest writer. That’s one of the reasons why I usually stick to writing recipes. But I have something on my mind and writing this blog has given me enough confidence to at least try to share it with you. Hopefully, I will get my point across in a positive way, as intended.
Live Your Life Without Regret
You can’t change something that has already been…that already is.
Regret will not allow you to move forward.
You have to put aside regret to move on, to live, to heal.
Living in the moment allows you to see beauty and grace in all that is around you.
See it, breathe it in.
Accept the things you cannot change.
Let go of your regrets.
Let today be a fresh start, a new day.
What am I talking about? Well, let’s say you’re feeling blue because you had a longtime friend who was ill and she passed away before you told her how much she meant to you. It is months later but the bitterness remains within you. You’re still holding on to the “what if?” or “if only”…you regret not having picked up the phone to call her like you had so many times in the past. You regret that no one told you she was ill. No one told you she was dying.
Your regrets can’t change anything. In fact, not only do they make no difference but they build and build and build inside of you…they cause you harm. They eat away at you and make you miserable.
It affects those who love you and makes them gloomy as well. They see you are miserable, depressed and angry but they feel helpless because there is no way to make you happy. They can’t break down the bitter gloominess that surrounds you.
Regret fills the room up with negativity. It sits there, lurking in every corner. It sucks the beauty, grace, life and energy out of everything. It makes you feel tired, weak and sorry for yourself. It blows small concerns up into big ones. It does not allow you to have joy, to laugh, or to share joy with those you love and those who are closest to you.
All your loved ones can do, is try and be supportive. Lend you a shoulder to cry on but ultimately, it’s up to you to choose to put aside your regrets. You need to realise that living with regret is not healthy for you and is harmful to those around you.
It’s up to you to make up your mind to let go of regret.
Once you do, tears can flow, grieving and healing can begin.
Like a perfectly lovely flower bloom, you will feel open and alive.
You will have more energy.
You will begin to see the beauty, grace, love and joy that is all around you.
You will see that you yourself are beautiful, strong, open and ready to embrace life and love.
You will know that you are truly blessed.
In closing, I thank you my loyal readers. You are the reason I do what I do and you make me feel good for doing it.
I also want to thank Lynda, Sandra, Len, Jenny and Les for their inspiration, support and guidance. I honestly don’t know where I would be without you. And as always, thank you to my husband, my best friend and my greatest supporter. I am truly blessed to have you in my life. I love you!
