Life’s Regrets

Okay, so I’ve been thinking today about all the things that people do then regret – including my past self.

I just want to say to all my friends and anyone who may actually read this, that I’m about to get on the ‘soapbox’ for a minute or two.

First off, regrets are useless.  Yes, it’s okay to feel bad about something you do.  I’m not saying don’t feel bad about it.  I’m also not saying not to try to put it to rights.  I’m just saying not to let regrets rule your life.

Next off, learn from your mistakes.  It’s hard to regret something if you can turn it into a learning experience.  Go out, figure out what was wrong and why, and decide how to not let it happen again.

Finally, move off of the mistake.  Try to make it right.  If the other party doesn’t want to accept it, then they probably don’t deserve your company anyways. 

In all this, please understand that making mistakes is human.  I’m obviously not perfect and have made a BUTTLOAD of mistakes in the past.  But, I am realizing that those mistakes, and how I’ve handled them have made me into the person I am today.

I am now stepping off my ‘soapbox’ but I just wanted to say all this for anyone who cares.

I’d just like to thank everyone for allowing me to stand on the ‘box’, and Mom for helping me understand this and my potential.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal which will be carried in your heart forever.

Only the lonely survives strongly, as for I will strongly die. An unexplored life is a life with no experience ~ For exploration has consistently hit me, but experience I have none. A life without love is a life without emotions ~ For love has come and gone but my emotions are stressfully dying.
A rested head and an uncleared mind is taking up the worse in me. It’s so stressing to take up for someone else’s problem. My mind is to the point to where every thought that it encounters drowns in the world around me.
Fiendfully loving, yearning to be loved…Loved to where I know he’s not ~ As in every hurt, every bit of pain that I dont want to endure. I’ve never wanted to hurt ~ For the pain that I give is a pain to forgive, it is a pain to understand. But the pain that I receive, is a pain so unfair. So did I need to hurt…better yet deserve it???
My heart is only so big, with only so much power ~ Don’t hold, don’t touch…Just look and feel the damage that you have done. Intentionally never is the reason but I don’t know is always the answer. Though being not necessary, Was it worth it???
Then if you love me, why dont you hurt??? Why don’t you feel the pain that your love has rationed out. If you know it at mind, then feel it in your heart.
Love me, that’s all I ever needed ~ Loving me right is all I ever wanted.

*Silently Speaking, Secretly Feeling, Discreetly Loving…You’re not here ~ Why??

To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.
Your presence is a present to the world.
You are unique and one of a kind.
Your life can be what you want it to be.
Take the days just one at a time.
Count your blessings, not your troubles.
You will make it through whatever comes along.
Within you are so many answers.
Do not put limits on yourself.
Decisions are too important to leave to chance.

Reach for your peak, your goal and your prize.
Nothing wastes more energy than worrying.
The longer one carries a problem the heavier it gets.
Do not take things too seriously.
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.
Remember that a little love goes a long way. Remember that a lot goes forever.
Remember that friendship is a wise investment.
Life’s treasure are people together.
Realize that it is never too late.
Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way.

Have hearth and hope and happiness.
Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you respond to it.
Don’t be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.
Take the time to wish upon a star.
Words are windows to the heart.
You are richer today if you have laughed, given or forgiven.
I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.
Life is like an onion; you peel off one layer at a time and sometimes you weep.
Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
A good example is the best sermon.

No one is easier to deceive than oneself.
The greatest fault of all is to be conscious of none.
Love is understanding, acceptance, and tenderness. If it tries to strangle and possess, it is not love.
The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.
The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power within us.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.
When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one which has been opened for us.
The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.
It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.
Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

Always put yourself in others’ shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too.
The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind.
You can’t change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future.
Love ……and you shall be loved.
All people smile in the same language.
A hug is a great size fits all. It can be given for any occasion and it’s easy to exchange.
Everyone needs to be loved…especially when they do not deserve it.

The real measure of a man’s wealth is what he has invested in love.
Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.
It’s important for parents to live the same things they teach.
If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
Happy memories never wear out…. relive them as often as you want.
Home is the place where we grumble the most, but are often treated the best.
The choice you make today will usually affect tomorrow.
Take time to laugh for it is the music of the soul.
If anyone speaks badly of you, live so none will believe it.
Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears.

Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together.
The best thing parents can do for their children is to love each other.
Harsh words break no bones but they do break hearts.
To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it.
We take for granted the things that we should be giving thanks for.
Love is the only thing that can be divided without being diminished.
Happiness is enhanced by others but does not depend upon others.
For every minute you are angry with someone, you lose 60 seconds of happiness that you can never get back.
Do what you can, for who you can, with what you have, and where you are.
