There Are No Regrets in Life, Just Lessons!

How often have you done this: Sit back with yourself and write down things from your past that you regret?

Let me remind you of something very mild: sooner or later your time will come and all the things that look important to you now will fade and until your last breath what will remain are the moments of love and joy.

What is Regret?

Regret is a state of negative emotion that involves putting the blame on ourselves for some bad outcomes, feeling sorrowful at what has happened or having a feeling to undo the previous decision that we made. Regret is the bully in our head that many times stop you from diving in something you dream of.

Regrets will constantly mold you into the person you do not want to be and will also be the source of giving advice to others. Right?

When you evaluate your lives, all of the things in your life that you regret, accept them. What has happened is never going to change.

Harness the Power of Your Thoughts

Life usually doesn't follow the path of our desires. We’ve to let go. If you ever find yourselves going through regretful thoughts, you need to get out of your noisy head, into a calm zone.

What Can You Do?

  • Empty your brain to control your mind
  • Remember you get what you put your focus on
  • Don't cling to your expectations
  • Take a few minutes to acknowledge your regrets
  • Restate your damaging thoughts
  • Look at your long-term goals
  • Hold yourself accountable
  • Choose positive your inspiring thought pattern for your brain
  • Laugh it off to clear the clutter
  • Go on nature walk every day
  • Let go of your fantasies of other time
  • Shift your focus from yourself to something else

Every single day, you really have to make your journey count, because how far we’d travel is a big mystery. One day, you’ll be very close to the end, wishing it was the beginning. It’s never too late. Let it begin now. Today is life, you've got a priceless opportunity to live a life with no regrets. Forget the past. Let there be no excuses, no regrets! Enjoy the moment of peace.

Give this New Year - 2019, a bang on start to fight back all your regretful thoughts. Because good days give you happiness, bad days give you experience, and worst days give you a lesson.

It’s your life, you've got the choice. What will you choose: You wish to drown in regret over what never came or use our energy to create what can be? I choose the latter.
