There is really nothing more that you will regret than the opportunities that you didn’t take.
As a child who was still growing up but thought she figured out what life is, I thought most of the times people regret about are the things that they do and consequently results to failure.
And it greatly affects my perception of life.
But years made me realize it is really what we didn’t take, the what ifs, the late nights thinking, and the lost opportunities that we often regret the most.
I regret not joining clubs in school, I regret not pursuing my passion in writing earlier, I regret not having anything to excel about. I yearned for the lost of opportunities that I had.
I regret not doing anything to help other people rather than to feel sorry for them.
I regret that I turn 21 without achieving what I think I could because along the way I turn around and shrug at the opportunities that is on my way.
But spending my time thinking of those “regrets” for too long would might just waste my time and consequently I might miss another opportunity.
We might have had miss a big opportunity, we might be regretting it until now… But we shouldn’t dwell on them for them for too long. It is good that we have learned our lesson.
“Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you love. Just… start.”
But let’s move on and look around, we might have just miss the next big thing in our life.
And if another opens up for you, don’t be afraid to say yes and start.
