As you know I was away for a few weeks. I was on the beach (this was our everyday thing) I thought about the things that I regret not doing.

Oh good old regrets!!! As you know I was away for a few weeks. I went to Curacao to soak up some sun and charge my battery mentally and physically. While doing that I had a lot of time to think without interruptions in daily life. When I was on the beach (this was our everyday thing) I thought about the things that I regret not doing.

A waste of time

I always try to convince myself that having regrets is a waste of time. I have heard people say it and I try my best to feel like that but as an overthinker, this is quite impossible. Of course, regrets are useless because you can’t go back in time and change things. I do think that by thinking about the things that I regret I try to make different decisions in my life now. I am going to write a list of the things that I regret. (You may take a shot every time I wrote the word regret..there is no doubt about what the topic of this post is..LOL)

List of regrets (yes I have a list)

  1. Not going to an acting school. I would have loved to be in plays, shows, or movies.ย 
  2. Not pursuing music more. I loved it when we went into the studio and recorded music. I loved performing our music.ย 
  3. Not going on my study trip abroad when I was in college because I was so in LOVE ๐Ÿ˜’ and didn’t want to leave him for such a long period. Now that I am older I know why I didn’t want to go. This was because I didn’t trust him and guess what I was RIGHT!! I will never miss an opportunity again for a man. (side-eying myself) ๐Ÿ˜’ If I did this when I was younger I wouldn’t have this fear these days of just taking the step and traveling alone. But I am going to do this.!!! Watch me.ย 
  4. Not quitting college earlier and thinking about what I wanted to do with my education.ย 
  5. Not traveling more and seeing the world. For the first few years, I only went to Curacao like there aren’t any other countries on planet Earth. I LOVE Curacao but there is more out there. I now have a bucket list of countries that I want to visit.ย 
  6. And my biggest regret is that I didn’t believe in myself from an earlier age. This has caused me to be so insecure and always question my next steps.ย 

Letting regrets go

I am going to end this ramble of mine on a positive note by saying that I did let most of these regrets go. I did this by trying to do some of them, like traveling more, and by quitting my job after 20+ years. Of course, some days I still wake up anxious because I don’t know where life is going to take me. I do have to say that I also sometimes wake up with butterflies in my stomach because this not knowing is exciting and I love that everything is possible.ย  My list could have been longer but I just highlighted the most important ones to me.ย 

How do you deal with regrets?

Do you have things that you regret and how do you deal with them? I have just finished the book Girl Stop Apologizing which helped me with my previous post. I will do a dedicated book review post. I have now seen the book The Power of Letting Go and I might pick that one up.ย  Let me know on Instagram, Facebook, or under this post how you deal with regrets.Thanxxx for reading as always and talk to you next week ๐Ÿ™‚

Spread the love
