In the past, I’ve sometimes gotten caught up in regrets. I’d obsess about what "might have been" if I’d made different decisions or gone in a different direction.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda.
Sometimes, I’d get so consumed with yesterday, it would rob me of the joy of today. And obviously, that’s not a recipe for happy, hopeful, and positive living.
So, now I don’t let my thoughts dwell on regrets. Because really, what’s the point? I focus on the present ~ knowing that in the past, I made the best decision I could with the information available to me and regretting my decisions merely wastes my time and steals my joy.
The present is a gift and it’s my choice what I do with it every day. I choose happiness.
