Lucy Maud Montgomery gave us, “Anne of Green Gables,” a wonderful account of a young orphan who insisted on spelling her name, Anne with an “E”. While Ms. Montgomery experienced great literary success, her life was difficult and marked by periods of depression. Her writings reflect her deep understanding of the pleasures of family life and our need for connections within a supportive community. Mistakes will lead to regret, but we have the choice to learn and move on, without taking the extra “regret baggage” along with us.
“We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery
