Here’s a thought…

I love quotes.  Over the years, I used them to keep me focused during my busy daily routine.  My computer, my desk, my fridge and my mirrors have one thing in common – they bear sticky notes with a thought or reflection.   I admit that I am a “thought hoarder.”  I do not seek a cure, for the joy of hoarding ideas is too exhilarating to give up.

This past week, I have been thinking about what keeps us from moving forward.  The first word that came to me was: regret.  It seems to be a human frailty.  Yet, it has the potential power to build resilience and fortitude.  Regret reminds us that time is finite – that what we say, or do not say, makes a difference, that what we do or do not do has consequences.  Embracing regret is not wallowing in self-pity.  Rather, it is about saying that today, I will begin again.

This coming week, LadyBudd will explore my favourite quotes on regret.  I invite you to join the dialogue.

“Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other path, no other way, no day but today.” 
― Jonathan Larson, Rent

  1. I’m a quote addict, too. I love your idea of posting quotes around your home. So creative. Mine are just typed up in a document on my laptop. How uninspiring!! Thank you for you for the inspiration. Looking forward to more on ‘regret’. I love this one. There’s a lot to be said for living in the present. Blessings xx
