Sunday Scribblings - "Regrets"

I don’t think I regret anything I’ve done, really (other than bullying my sibs when they were younger)... it’s the things that I haven’t done, couldn’t do, and can’t and won’t be doing that I have regrets about.

Oh well, since I believe in principle that nothing should be wasted and practice? practise? as much of that belief as possible, by extension of that principle, I believe in reincarnation too (why let souls go waste, any more than anything else?).

So, next time around, I hope to get to do all the things that I regret being unable to do this time around. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t turn into the vengeful kind of “careful what you wish for, in case you get it”...

its good not to have regrets. i try not to because i see what i learned from it, then it is not a regret.

Anthing that teaches a lesson must be good for us. So, when we learn from our regrets . . . it's a good thing too. Regrets and Joys all make of the you, here and now. So, here's to regrets . . . may we always learn from them!

Blessings to you and yours. . .

Nice post! Personally, it's the things I didn't say (rather than the things I didn't do) that bother me. I mostly regret being dumb (figuratively & literally) during confrontations. This is what pains me even more-- choice words rush to me when it's too late (when I no longer have the chance to talk back).

Interesting post. I have mixed feelings about the idea of reincarnation.
I, too, have very few regrets about what I've done, and somewhat more regrets about what I've not done - the latter more due to laziness, shyness, stubbornness...
