Daily Prompt: Regrets – I’ve had a few

Channel St (2)

What’s your biggest regret? How would your life have been different if you’d made another decision?

Well let me make it absolutely clear that I wouldn’t change anything in my life as I believe things happen for a reason and our experiences make us the people that we are today!

However, I am going to suspend that thought so that I can play around with this blog post. For a start, I would address the following:

  • I would be a stable, self-confident teenager with lots of interests, including sport
  • I would complete high school with excellent results
  • From there I would go on to University to develop my skills, knowledge and life experience
  • I would not have married at eighteen as I wasn’t even sure who I was at that age
  • I can never regret having my three sons – the best thing I ever did!
  • I would enjoy a career that somehow related to writing and I would become very knowledgeable and confident in my field of interest
  • I would continue to take part in sport throughout my life – enhancing my health and fitness today
  • If I had the opportunity to re-do my role as a parent I would be a better mum in all possible ways
  • I would also be a better daughter and appreciate, love and respect my parents a lot more and not take them for granted.

So, back to reality … I did the best I could with what I knew then. That is all we can do 🙂

  1. I’m with you . . . my current life is the sum of ALL the choices I’ve made through the years. Those choices led to THIS DOOR. Since I like where I’m at, I don’t regret the choices I’ve made.

  2. Good to think about. I liked reading your thoughts, Lorraine. Good post. If I hadn’t married (at 21) my hs bf I wouldn’t have the kids I do and the grandchildren. I regret not being able to see my parents one more time.
