We all own our fair share of regrets in this world. To be honest, I myself have done a lot of things I’m not proud of. I can think of several that I’d do differently if I’m ever given a chance to travel back into time. I have a long list of things I wish I didn’t do, people in my past I wish I hadn’t had to hurt, words I wish I’d never said. Most of these mistakes are unintentional, but of course that doesn’t make it any less deplorable. I wish I had listened closely, forgiven easily, tried better, asked less, given more.
I don’t know if in any part of this world time travel is possible, but I sure wouldn’t count on it. If there’s anything at all I appreciate about that feeling of regret, it’s the fact that it drives us to start all over again. At one way or another, it teaches us never to give up. Because no matter how difficult it was yesterday, the thing is, God still woke us up today for a chance to do it right the second time around.
My life is not perfect, but it’s a happy story. I have a family that’s been through so much, but still remains strong, glued to our faith in God, and trust and love for each other. I have really good friends, though not a lot, they’re enough to last a lifetime because they are genuine and our friendship have surpassed the test of time. I have a boyfriend who’s also my soulmate, and I’d love him again and again in this world and in the next. And last but not the least, I get to do what I love. I get to experience the fulfillment of doing what I do best, and I get to seize the opportunity of becoming better at my craft.
I don’t want a perfect life, I only need a happy one. I may not have everything, but for all that and more, I am forever grateful. :)
The long holiday’s over and I’m starting to see “back to work” tweets all over my Twitter feed. Hopefully everyone had a meaningful holy week along with a chance to reflect and repent. Happy Easter to all of you lovely people!!! :)
