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.

Autism Aspergers Magazine

Linda was a contributor for Autism Aspergers Network Magazine!


We are raising money to cover the boys medical and disability expenses. ALL funds raised go into their own account, to pay for these expenses. Things such as speech therapy, occuptational therapy, psychology, chaperoned sport and social activities, and special equipment etc. I hate having to do this, but hey, if you don't like it, then give me a job ;-). Please click on the photo to go to their GoFundMe page, and thank you for your time (and I do hope, your generous donation *cheeky grin*)!!!
