What Of Life

I try not to regret the past.

I try not to regret making the most of my body while I had a good looking one, and a good working one, instead of hiding it all the time.

I try not to regret working on my bucket list more enthusiastically.

I try not to regret putting what society wanted for me before what I wanted for me.

I try not to regret many many things.

Every now and then I take stock, and think “in five years, what would I have wanted me to do today?”  I can’t get back yesterday, so there is no point in regretting what I did or didn’t do… but I can start today to make sure that I have few reasons to be regretful later.

So every now and then, I try to think about what I want for today and for the future.  What do I need to do (or stop doing) in order to ensure that my life is the best it can be?

This isn’t a five-minute contemplation.  It’s far more complicated than that.  It takes a while.  A few hours, or a few days.  Sometimes a few weeks to nut out the finer details.  However, it is good to do every so often, so that I am on track.  So that I make the most out of this life that I have.

So I have few reasons to have regrets later.  It’s much easier then, to not be regretful.
