"As you grow older, you'll find that the only things you regret are the things you didn't do." Zachary Scott
REGRET. Six letters that can sink me down any day of the week. A word that if said alone, carries the weight of the seconds in a decade. Regret draws me into a cycle of doubt and missed opportunity that leaves me high and dry.
But listen, and I only say this at the risk of being overtly optimistic and after reading too many forwards:
What if regret is the only way we can catch opportunity as it comes to us?
What if regret is the only way that appreciation and contentment sink into our hearts?
What if we need to experience regret to experience life at its fullest?
I certainly hope so, because this pool of regret is pulling me in.
