Regret

Regret is very interesting subject. Lately, I have noticed celebrities being interviewed, telling their story of rise, fall, and comeback and then saying, " I don't regret anything..." Really? You don't regret anything? So to make sure I understood the word correctly I looked it up... Here are the definitions;

From http://www.dictionary.com/,
–verb (used with object)
1. to feel sorrow or remorse for (an act, fault, disappointment, etc.): He no sooner spoke than he regretted it.
2. to think of with a sense of loss: to regret one's vanished youth.
–noun
3. a sense of loss, disappointment, dissatisfaction, etc.
4. a feeling of sorrow or remorse for a fault, act, loss, disappointment, etc.
5. regrets, a polite, usually formal refusal of an invitation: I sent her my regrets.
6. a note expressing regret at one's inability to accept an invitation: I have had four acceptances and one regret.
 
So, the way I read this, those who say they have no regrets have no disappointment in the things they have done, don't think it was their fault, etc. and so forth....hmmm.... Makes me think...that's cool, I get it, it's not my fault either. I mean saying "no regets" frees you of anything that has happen; clean slate. BUT, ultimately what I always wonder is, given the chance, would you do "it" over? Would you make a different decision? I would. I would do over some things. Why not given the chance?
 
However, I can't change anything. Nothing. So now a days, I try to do things that I won't regret. This is not guaranteed, but I will try. Nevertheless, to say you don't regret anything? Bananas!

Finally...

So I finally committed to doing this blog. In my head, I have been doing this blog for about two years. I say that because everytime I had a thought I would think to myself, "that would be something I could write about on my blog". Anyway, I am committed! I set this up about a month ago and still didn't write anything. In my obssesive, compulsive, "I want this blog to be perfect" it prevented me from writing the first entry. Just do it, right? Right!

Well, the blog is going to be about, nothing.... well, nothing in particular. Just what I observe and think about things that are going on in my life. If you read, "About Me" you know that I am a "2 1/2 years" in stay at home mom and wife. I'll mostly talk about that, because believe it or not, I am still adjusting. Also, I didn't say too much about me in the "About Me" because I want you to get to know me as I take this journey moving forward.

Thanks for letting me share with you!
