Do you Regret throughout your life for the things you did/missed?

“We don’t ask a flower any special reason for its existence. We just look at it and are able to accept it as being something different for ourselves.”   Gwendolyn Brooks

The flowers always amaze me!

We are never tired of looking at the flower continuously.

And we are alive today because of the existence of flowers, fruits, roots, and the entire plant kingdom. Not just us, every other form of life owes to the plant kingdom for their existence.

My regret is how I missed these flowers in my entire life till now and recently I started taking note of these beautiful creations of Almighty.

Maybe I have used most of the time given by God in dealing with people’s problems, and I get some comfort in that I could save many, thanks to my profession.

But I feel guilty that I missed Mother Nature.

I must express my sincere thanks to Cee Neuner for this inspiration.

Thank you, Cee Neuner, for making me realize how important it is to have a look at Mother Nature, despite our busy schedules.

Please do visit her lovely blog for those beautiful Mother Nature Photos and inspiration.

But for her, I would have not even given so much of my attention to these beautiful flowers.

Do our regrets be with us forever?

It is said ‘Regrets’ lasts forever. Do you agree?

I feel we need not make it an added burden.

What has happened, happened.

No doubt ‘Regret’ is a powerful force.

It’s a good thing that we regret certain things in our lives and feel we could have done things much earlier. It allows us to better ourselves.

But no need to carry those regrets forever.

“Make it a rule of life

Never to regret and never to look back

Regret is an appalling waste of energy

You can’t build on it

It’s only good for wallowing in”  Katherine Mansfield

Take home message

“Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.”  Victoria Holt

And I have become wiser now from my experience.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    I live for the future, yesterday and its mistakes are like unwanted baggage, best left behind!

    Regrets take up too much energy. If I regretted every mistake and held on to it I’d never make it out the door. Throw yesterdays mistakes away. There’s a whole bunch of new ones to look forward to today
