Regrets

Do you have regrets?

I think we all do.

My strongest regrets are not for things I did, but for things I didn’t do:

  • Being afraid of girls and not talking to them till I was older
  • Not starting to exercise till I was 16
  • Not having a better high school GPA
  • Not turning off my television sooner

I don’t regret actions that I took that failed, because I know I tried hard and took the shot even though it didn’t succeed.  To be honest though, when I have tried to do something I was afraid of I often surprised myself by finding out how easy it was and wondering why I didn’t do it sooner.

My greatest fear is no longer of failing, but of not trying.

In ten years, what will you regret not having done now?

One thought on “Regrets

  1. All of your regrets are also mines. There is no way to change the past but I think we can make up for it with our future actions. All we have to do is get better.
