That’s a lot of regret, most involve changing our past, something that we can’t do, bit we can change the way we react and respond to it!

We can feel bad about things, even bemoan our lot once in a while about the things that
we have done that we wish we hadn’t, or the things that we haven’t done that we wish we
had. But there comes a time when we have to turn a regret into a target.

As long as we hold on to those regrets – about anything in our lives – we are tightly
grabbing the end of an anchor. Regrets can only serve to hold us in place as our focus
is forced to be backwards onto things we can’t change, rather than forwards onto the
things we can still influence.

Move on, move up and move forward. Learn from your experiences, but for goodness sake
and for your own sake – let go of the anchor of regret.

Instead why not create a bucket list, if you don’t already have one, why not create a
target of all the things you would like to do and experience in your life!

Go on have some fun, and imagine what would you like to do if anything was possible.

Think differently and make it happen!
