REGRET is; concern, worry, misgiving, frustration. THE PAST SHOULD NOT GIVE YOU REGRETS. That is why we have the PRESENT. The PRESENT gives us the opportunity to correct the mistakes of the PAST so that the FUTURE will bring smiles and JOY. If you stay in the PRESENT without attempting to repair the mistakes of the PAST, then one remains always living in the PAST.
Making a mistake is a learning process that you bring to the FUTURE as KNOWLEDGE. When you approach the FUTURE with that knowledge you can then remedy the mistake while you are in the PRESENT. Do not allow your mistake to keep you in the PAST. You will have no JOY living constantly with your mistake. Having a regret is like trying to swim with an anchor around your neck. DEALING WITH THE REGRET CAN BE A SIMPLE APOLOGY THAT IS NEEDED TO EXPRESS OR A LIVING SITUATION THAT NEEDS TO BE REVISED.
Living with a regretful thought or situation will add frustration to the PRESENT. Which in turn will diminish or cloud up your FUTURE. It is truly a very heavy load to carry with you constantly. Regret makes one always look backward, to the PAST, it will definitely hinder your forward step to the FUTURE.
IS YOUR FUTURE YOUR PAST? THE PRESENT IS HERE TO ALLOW YOU TO STOP AND ADJUST YOUR PAST, SO YOU CAN PREPARE FOR A BETTER AND HARMONIOUS FUTURE FOR ALL THOSE YOU TOUCH.

There are times I believe this blog is written for me. I also assume that many people reflect at the end of the year, and feel the need to deal with their “regrets “.
This is a fine message for young and old. spending time on issues of the past can only be corrected by actions we take today and in the future , so as the guidance of Mr. Winnegrad states, move forward.
Happy New Year
A perfect post for this New Year! We all have regrets, it is how we deal with them that allows us to move forward and often forgive ourselves. Happy New Year! Brighter days ahead! 💜
