Life without regrets

Who am I?

I am who I say I am and tomorrow someone else entirely.

--- White Oleander

It is hard to say that we live life without any regret. Why?

I am sure that you, like me have more than one regret in life?

Though we like to have a life full of joys and happiness, yet it is so easy to do something that make our life the other way round!

We like to put off something that brings us joy!

We fail to see the opportunity to experience joy!

We tend to use excuses like we have not thought about it!

Though joys is in our life seeking list, we do not have it on our busy schedule!

We sometime know it was coming, yet we were too rigid to depart from our routine to experience it!

We like to cram so much stuff into our life and keep joy out of our calendar!

We tend to schedule our headaches first and let our fresh mind doing the fire fighting all the time. We just leave no room for joys.

We live to fulfil our promises to others and not keeping the promises we have for ourselves.

When all the conditions are perfect for joys, we are too tire to enjoy it!

If you add one decade to your life, and compare your energy level you have with that a decade ago, you will understand that life has a way of accelerating as we get older.

Our days will get shorter, and the list of promises we have made gets longer.

Do you have clothes that you bought years ago and have no time to wear? Do you have shoes that you pay a lot for it and have never find a change to put your feet into it?

Do have gifts that you kept for others or yourself and it is, until today, remained as an unopened gift?

Do you thrown away expensive food that you kept in your fridge as it was too costly to eat without any reasons or occasions?

Even though we do not run life like a race, yet we treat our life (from birth to the grave) with so much hurry!

We have the tendency to find the quickest way to to get from one place to other!

Why not have some time in between to look at the sky and things around you!

Steal some moments in life to feel the wind blow!

Have some time to hear the music and song of life before it is over.

Just reflect and look at life in retrospect, 5 years from now, or 10, 15, 20 etc., would you be happy with things you have done today or at this very moment? Or would you be disappointed or regret that you did it now?

It is so easy to correct them when we look at the mistakes we made in the years just passed us.

With that kind of mind set, when we explore, dream or discover any new thing now, we could make a wiser choice!

Some statements of life, like "if I know, I could have, might have, and should have" may has less occurence in our description in retrospect.

Just remember, it takes us less effort in the future if we have less worry and regret about life. So we choose to make it it right at the time you do it! The choice is yours at the moment of your action!

Just remmember, If we hurry through our days and make choices that we are going to regret or feel disappointed, we are wasting our life!

Do you still want to hurry so much and lost so much in time!

Life without regrets is not easy, yet, you may create it slowly now with all your remaining life!
