Things I Never Regret

Our theme this week is regrets, but here is the thing–i’m not big on regret. We are all human and we all make choices both good and not so good and we learn from them. I am a firm believer that every experience in your life has made you who you are now.
So, instead, i’ve decided to share a few things I never regret doing:

going on trips both long and short
looking at art
going to the movies
any time spent in nature
What are the things that you never regret? Share in the comments below!

  1. Dear Louise, Ditto all the things you mentioned…specially eating ice cream, reading, writing in my journal, meditating,hanging out with friends and family, napping, and for me a wonderful walk along the beach living so close to the shoreline, watching my beautiful hummingbirds sip nectar from the flowers in my garden, painting and cuddling up on the couch with Wally my dog. Of course the list can go on an on… just being grateful and remembering to give thanks.

  2. It’s hard to list the things I don’t regret, because there are a lot of them. But here are a few:

    1) Never seeking conventional publication for my writing.
    2) My marriage, though it was not, in most people’s terms, a “success.”
    3) Seeing Les MIserables on Broadway. Three times. In good seats. Not cheap — totally worth it.
    4) Napping, movies, time with family (well, some family), ice cream.
    5) Spending several days on Cape Cod last fall, and doing pretty much nothing while I was there. Looking, breathing, walking — that can be plenty.

    There are more, but I think I’m going to go take a nap now. 🙂
